While it sucks in this case, it is totally legal to not talk to the cops and probably why he hasn't been charged. He isn't incriminating himself anymore than he already has.

Then he should go into custody and get himself a lawyer. If this guy is still free to drive around, live his life (recklessly) and endanger other people... there is REALLY something bad with our law enforcment and policies. This is completely wrong. You and I would have at least had to pay a traffic violation ticket of some sort. What makes him so special???

It is SICK to know that someone can drive over someone and not have to answer the questions.

We did retain a lawyer immidiatley. A heavy hitter who doesn't take on many cases himself (he told me he only takes one out every hundred or more cases that approach him). He's well known in Denver, has his own radio show on AM radio every afternoon.

The Trooper on the case has been investigating. The truck was impounded and was inspected by several 'specialists'. Nothing was found to be wrong with the truck. He is supposedly waiting to get phone/text records on the driver to determine if he was distacted by that.

They did not test the driver for drugs or alchahol. For some moronic reason, the cop on the scene did not feel he had 'probable cause'. WTF?!?! How is there no PC?

Taking it to the media sounds like a good idea, but my lawyer is advising me to just let the State Patrol conclude their investigation, and not make a lot of noise at this point...

Just to update....
They finally arrested and booked the guy last week.
Of course he bonded out within hours, but at least now charges are filed.

The DA tells us the reason it took so long is because they are hitting him with the most serious charges their office has ever charged in this type of case, and they wanted to be certain they had all their ducks in a row, and investigated every aspect as fully as they could.

He goes to trial April 3 to face the following charges:
Criminally negligent homicide (class 5 felony).
Operating a motor vehicle while on a suspended license (minimum 1 year additional suspension).
Assault with a deadly weapon (for the minor injuries Bobby's friend suffered).

Today (Feb 3) would have been his 20th b-day.

So, the guy plead guilty to everything, in exchange for not being sent to the state pen.
Sentencing was this morning.
It was quite the ordeal.

Bottom line, he got hit with 2 years in the county jail, on a work-release program, and 5 years "intensely supervised" probation on each of the three charges. To be served concurrently. Also 20k$ restitution to the Colorado victim assistance fund (who paid for the mortician, funeral, grief counselors, etc.).

He checks out of the jail in the morn, finds a job, works, checks back into jail at the end of the day. What he earns goes toward his restitution. If he sticks with the program, he could be out in a year on probation. If he screws up, he does the full term in the county jail.

It's not as much as I hoped for, but better than we were warned could have happened...

It does bring some closure, but not a lot.
We still don't know WHY it happenend, and the guy isn't giving any explanation for the cause of the accident.
Hopefully we learn more in the civil trial, which doesn't happen till next April...

That is an extremely lenient sentence IMO.
This guy killed somebody.

What a waste. A nice young man on his way through manhood ending so abruptly. I can not imagine the pain you and all your family have gone through. I commend all of your decisions I have read here. I know that none of them could have been easy. God bless you and your son.

The civil case has been settled.
We went to mediation a few weeks ago, and thier offer was an insult.
We were gonna take it in front of a jury starting this Monday (8th).
They came at us with an offer Tues morn. We counter offered by a sizeable amount, and they accepted.
It's finally all done and over....phew...
