Did anyone read further about her "Significant Other" who made his own $100k bail, yet left her to rot since arrest on her "measley" (relatively) $25k, yet apparently has roughly a million or more in assets?
They should have given that crack head a life sentence! I hope she gets the "broom stick treatment" every day she is in jail. As far as the other two crack heads, I sure hope the judge has a very bad day prior to sentencing them.
Olsen, who was on probation at the time for a misdemeanor drug offense, was given the maximum sentence possible. Her probation report shows convictions for misdemeanor driving under the influence, willful cruelty to a child, disturbing the peace and other offenses.
The injured rider could (should?) still go after the rich guy who got off in civil court...you don't need "beyond a reasonable doubt", you just need a "preponderance of the evidence" and the rider could get damages plus the lovely thing about civil court, punitive damages.
"Yeah, I've got 500 stiches in my face and titanium plates in my head, but I'm also the new owner of $900,000 worth of property; look, even thee driveway is freshly repaved!"
Well, it was a dirt bike, so it was probably a dirt bike helmet with no shield. I guess if at the right angle, it could have caught through the opening and might have been able to snag him at around the upper lip area. Which, if you look at the large opening of a dirt bike helmet and the way the front piece that covers the mouth seems to stick out further than a street going full face helmet, it really does seem possible for the rope to make its way through the opening and catch you between the nose and the upper lip area.
I was also wondering if the rope caught the underside of the helmet, pulled the helmet up over his head and the rope ended up catching him at his upper lip/nose.
