DUI Killer Free Since November '09 Death, Thanks to Snoozy, Boozy DA Jim Martin

Readers, LVS can barely keep up (see previous post) w/ the back-ordered felony DUI cases that DA Jim Martin is cleaning out from the bottom of his desk (because it's an election year) while everyone is on vacation and won't notice, Martin hopes.

This "latest" DUI (from 2009) involves a death, and serious injury, and is again dutifully 'hidden in plain sight' online by DA Jim Martin Morning Call "newspaper" "reporter" lapdog Kevin Amerman after 5:00 pm on a Friday-- and apparently this story was cubby Amerman's last detail before his vacation starts tomorrow, according to his voicemail.

Have a read ...


Here are The Inconvenient Facts in a nutshell ...

* On November 21, 2009, driving drunk, and speeding, Miqueas Rafael Garcia slammed into the car of Carolina Fernandez, killing her front seat passenger, her mother, Lyda Estrada-Davilla, and seriously injuring another passenger.

* It took DA Jim Martin more than 6 months to file criminal charges against Garcia on May 21, 2010.

* Garcia has been free on unsecured ($0.00) bail and likely free to drive ever since the fatal crash and injury mayhem he caused on November 21, 2009.

* Today, after nearly 2 years, DA Jim Martin helpfully and (hiccup) inexplicably dropped the major charge of felony homicide by vehicle against Garcia.

* By the time Judge Kelly Banach finally sentences Miqueas Rafael Garcia on September 9th for the misdemeanors DA Jim Martin has left on the table, Garcia will have evaded all accountability for killing Lyda Estrada-Davilla for nearly 2 years.

* Not coincidentally, that's how long "no nonsense" (?) DA Jim Martin has callously kept the already victimized and grief-stricken family of Lyda Estrada-Davilla waiting for "misdemeanor justice." Nearly 2 years. Disgraceful.

Villas, I'm in total awe of your courage and determination. Don't ever give up.

Bill Villa said...

Thanks, we won't.

If you'd like to make a difference too, please make a generous campaign contribution this weekend to ED KOREN FOR LEHIGH COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY ...

And then on November 8, de-throne Jim Martin by voting for ED KOREN FOR LEHIGH COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY.

Here's the Morning Call's un-professionally sketchy and embarrassingly incorrect ("no other serious injuries") coverage of the Estrada-Davilla fatal crash from November 22, 2009 nearly 2 years ago.

The people of Lehigh County deserve so much better service from our DA and from our monopoly newspaper, but unless we demand it, we'll never get it.

Your crusade is noble, but honestly, you might as well be screaming to the deaf.

Sometimes I see the news and I can't for the life of me understand why people arent rioting in the streets - healthcare - oil prices - thousands of wounded American soldiers coming home with horrific injuries

Must be a combination of things - everybodys overstressed, exhausted, overstimulated, overmedicated, overdistracted, and then theres just
plain dumb complacency.

Nobody gets excited about anything any more. I dont understand where peoples heads are at.

It's a very very peculiar world we live in. Or should I say country? If I was single I'd probably be working on a farm in New Zealand for room and board, and happy to do it.

If at some point you just decide to stop all this, you can do so with a clear conscience. Youre up on stage but the audience is in a coma. Thats not your fault.

Bill Villa said...

"If at some point I just decide to stop all this," yours would be the perfect final comment (or post) at LVS. Thank you for your good thoughts.

People are talking (back channel) ...

"If you quote me on this, I'll deny saying it ... but the reason Jim Martin is easy on drunken driving is because he drives drunk all the time. I can't tell you how many political functions I've been at with Mr. Martin where he staggers to his car and weaves home." -PA State Representative

"Martin qualifies for a DUI 3-4 times a week." -LV Mayor

When Martin loses to Koren, who will you target then? Will you retire?

I'll stay active with ongoing LVS exposés of likely new Gross McGinley lawyer Jim Martin.

Bill, is big bad motorcycle-riding Paul Carpenter afraid to meet w/ you?

Sadly, it's looking that way, yes, not a peep of a response back from Paul.

There was nothing "inexplicable" about the dropped charges. The charges were dropped in lieu of a guilty plea. Don't give false information unless you're trying to look like a fool. Twisting the facts doesn't make you a better candidate.

Bill Villa said...

What's 'inexplicable' is why DA Jim Martin goes so universally easy on drunk drivers who kill people.

State Representative Jennifer Mann told me it's because Jim Martin is a drunk who drives drunk all the time himself so he doesn't take DUI seriously as a crime.

Hopefully that explains it for you.

Bill Villa said...

(almost forgot)

Jennifer Mann told me she'd deny telling me what she told me, if I ever repeated it, which I understand (she's a politician) but that doesn't change what she told me about (hiccup) DA Martin.
