I'm an Aries, which one source says "Their immense energy makes them aggressive and restless, argumentative occasionally, headstrong, quick tempered, easily offended and capable of holding grudges if they feel themselves affronted." I guess that could apply sometimes
. I am affronted by a guy who would get ****faced, get behind the wheel, and cause this carnage.
"On Tuesday, Maguire appeared in court in a blue jumpsuit as his attorney, Christine Voss, entered a not-guilty plea.
She also asked Judge Thomas Adams to release Maguire and reduce his bail so he could care for his elderly mother.
Maguire’s mother, who uses a wheelchair, sat through almost an entire day of court proceedings, as did Maguire’s sister and brother, before Adams could get to the case on a packed calendar.
“As you can see, Mr. Maguire has a very insignificant record,” Voss told Adams. “He is otherwise a lawful-abiding citizen.”
Letters had been submitted from various people “from all walks of life” supporting Maguire’s character, she said.
The vehicle Maguire was driving was so badly damaged in the accident, he’d be unable to drive even if he was released, she said.
But Senior Deputy District Attorney Jeff Gittler took a much different view.
Because of the severity of the couple’s injuries, “[Maguire] is very fortunate this is not a murder charge,” he told the court, and asked that Adams raise Maguire’s bail amount to $160,000.
Maguire faced a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving in 2009, “and I guess he didn’t learn. … Many of these letters ask for a second chance for Mr. Maguire, but he’s had a second chance,” Gittler said.
After looking over the letters, Adams said he could not reduce the bail because of the seriousness of the collision.
If the allegations are true, Adams said, “this was a repeat situation, and the last matter was resolved in July 2009, which was recently.” "
So he wrecked his vehicle by nearly killing 4 people (a pair of 2-up motorcyclists), and his attorney spins it as...see, he can't harm anyone any more because his truck is so smashed he won't be able to drive it, so let him out on bail.
