This Gunderson case sure is a can of worms. It sounds pretty fishy to me, almost like he's been set up. Then again, if it's supposed to be his current wife that's the victim, and she "supports him", as Gunderson's lawyer claims, shouldn't he have been released by now?

She didn't show up at the hearing but was found outside the D.A.'s office and refused comment. Hmm???

The usual sides seem be have been drawn with the cop- haters following the story with glee and, what seem to be that anti- Gallegos folks, suggesting this is some sort of conspiracy.

I'll just wait for more details.
I can't help but be a little disappointed with the outcome in this case. The guy's driving maybe twice the speed limit, kills a pedestrian, and gets four years probation?

I tend to be pretty merciful in cases of accidents where no harm is intended, but this was extremely negligent. He's the kind of driver than makes my blood boil when I see them racing around town. True, he doesn't have much of a criminal record, although I wonder what his driving history looks like, aside from a DUI a few years ago?

Some might say this is another example of Gallegos' soft approach to prosecution but the prosecutor was Max Cardoza. Hasn't he been with the District Attorney's office since before Gallegos?

If Cardoza is, in fact, a veteran prosecutor, I wouldn't blame Gallegos for this one. The Gunderson case, perhaps, if it turns out to have been fabricated, but not this one.

That case just gets weirder by the minute, Fred.

Sorry Fred, you can't pin this stupid plea bargain on Cardoza. Gallegos runs the office and makes the calls.

The office has to plea bargain these things because there simply is not enough competent staff left to try cases. It is really a shame and it stinks that this man is getting probation for this crime. It really stinks.

I feel sad for the women being dragged through the legal process. I have no reason to believe that there would be a case to be made without criminal reports from a victim.
