This dude was allegedly yanking it in his car in front of a 16 year old girl.  He was also a girl's soccer coach for young women the same age.

 

He told the police:

"I’m heavier than I should be right now. I do drive with my jeans unbuttoned a lot because my pants don’t fit me,” police said Sharpe told them. “It’s entirely possible I was driving in those areas with my pants unbuttoned. Could I have been exposed? It’s a big possible. Sure all of it’s possible.”

So you just admitted that you were "possibly" in that area and you "possibly" had your pants undone. Why would this guy think that he could explain away this problem?

What in holy hell is going on in the land of argyle?

 

BRIDGEPORT — When police got to the scene, they said they thought a plane had crashed on Main Street.

There were pieces of car mixed with human body parts in a tree and scattered all over the area.

On Wednesday, after just an hour of deliberations, a Superior Court jury found 64-year-old David Henshaw guilty of second-degree manslaughter, misconduct with a motor vehicle and reckless driving for the Father’s Day 2016 death of Felipe Soto.

Henshaw, of Edgemoor Road, faces up to 15 years in prison when he is sentenced Jan. 30.

“The jury arrived at the appropriate verdict after carefully listening to the defendant’s testimony,” Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Craig Nowak said later.


Soto, 31, the father of three young children, had just pulled into Main Street from Fairview Avenue in his 1999 Honda Civic when he was broadsided by Henshaw, who, according to testimony, was traveling at 117 miles per hour southbound on Main Street in a 2006 Chrysler 300.

Little was left intact of Soto to be identified at the scene. Trumbull and Monroe police assisted Bridgeport police in the investigation.

Henshaw was pulled from his car — which ended up on its roof — by passersby.

Henshaw, a retired electrician, couldn’t explain why he was going 117 in a 25 mile per hour zone. He hadn’t been drinking and there were no mechanical problems with his car.

On the witness stand, he recalled he had sneezed at one point but couldn’t recall anything else about the crash.

Just before announcing its verdict, the jury asked to rehear a recording of his testimony.

In January 2017, Soto’s children were left parentless when his girlfriend and mother of his children was fatally shot while sitting in a car parked outside an East Main Street restaurant. A teenager was later convicted in her shooting.

That is a very sad story.  Those poor kids.  117 in a 25.  I can't imagine what was so important that he had to go that fast.

I used the sneeze excuse to get out of a red light ticket once. 

My wife is always amazed I don't jerk the wheel when I sneeze. I do all the driving as a family.
