drunkdrivingShirin Ukani was killed in Coral Springs, Florida when she was struck by a 2015 Mercedes-Benz driven by Richard Antosek.  What makes this case an even worse tragedy, is the fact that Ukani was 74 years old.

While the case is still being investigated, news reports indicate that Antosek may have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.

As we have discussed many times before in other traffic fatalities, this case may come down to a question of causation. In other words, what caused the collision between Antosek’s Mercedes and 74 year old Shirin Ukani? Did Ukani cross the street in a dangerous place? Was Antosek driving drunk?

Florida Department of Juvenile JusticeFor as long as I have practiced criminal law, I always said that there would be a revolution in this country if the general public knew the truth about what goes on in our criminal justice system. This case, however, is not about a less than stellar judge or a prosecutor who can’t see the forest from the trees.

This is about jail guards who bribed juvenile inmates with honey buns and cheeseburgers to beat up other inmates… and they almost got away with it.

This article is intended to make you smell the horrible stench that is reaking in our juvenile confinement system. This article is about Governmental abuse that you only see in movies or expect to read about in third world countries. This article, is about the death of Elord Revolte and the death of Andre Sheffield.

Screen Shot 2015-09-30 at 1.01.50 PMCongratulations Florida.  Another person has DIED again on our dangerous roadways. As if the horrible deaths of Brittany Musumeci and Alexis Musumeci on Saturday night were not bad enough, we had to start the week with the death of 3 year Trinity Handy on S.R. 82 in Fort Myers. (Some reports lists her name as Trinity Hardy.)

This is the THIRD fatal crash on S.R. 82 this month alone! It is also the SECOND time a young child was killed. In the past four years, State Road 82 has had almost 200 accidents, 13 fatalities, and over 230 injured people.

You don’t have to be an engineer to know that is an UNACCEPTABLE amount of death and injury.

As a result, this case presents a very serious legal issue – whether or not the State of Florida has negligently made and maintained a killer roadway. This is not only a legal issue, it is also a matter of great public importance and safety.

Florida Highway PatrolBrittany Musumeci, 23, and Alexis Musumeci, 24, both of Pompano Beach, Florida, were killed in Martin County car accident this past Saturday when they were hit by a wrong-way driver on I-95.  The women were driving a 2007 Toyota Matrix when their vehicle was hit by another driver traveling the wrong way.  The driver of the of the other vehicle was hospitalized.

Again – and I am not sure how many times I need to say this – we have yet ANOTHER example of how unacceptably dangerous Florida’s roadways are.  To make matters worse, the women killed in this horrible accident were sisters just starting their lives as young adults.
