Deborah Brogden: Kania’s ‘dodge’ caused bigger problems

Regarding the Oct. 18 news article “Kania sent to prison for triple fatal, DWI collision”: Whatever the findings, this accident and court case certainly qualified as a tragedy for all concerned.

Early on, Chandler Kania was caught speeding and was given a type of legal dodge with consideration for faulty odometer equipment. If held accountable for these earlier, less destructive crimes, Kania possibly might have begun to correct some of his problems and the current tragedy could have been avoided.

I suggest it’s time to have a judicial review of this “faulty vehicle equipment” option so frequently used as a dodge. Better to face up to a lesser charge and avoid worse.
