    ALICESTRONG- thanks for the update-we are curious how this will turn out.

    So report will be turned over to DA
    And DA as always-decides to charge or not charge.
    Hmmmm-no criminal charges is my bet-
    I assume he will claim he was suddenly distracted by something- and drifted over-some chance that is actually the truth

    Unlikely he will say "I was on the computer or texting for the 30 seconds before impact"-pretty fair chance this is what happened

    Unless his car malfunctioned (which I imagine would have been the first thing we heard) how can this not be at-fault and negligent?

    Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Joseph Jakl, - “If the deputy driving is deemed to be at fault, he would be charged with vehicular manslaughter, unless something comes up in the investigation that there was something completely negligent, then we could be looking at felony manslaughter. I won’t know the specifics until I have everything in hand.”

    Thank goodness they investigated it "out of HQ" instead of out of the division the deputy was assigned... we wouldn't want any hint of impropriety now would we.

    Thanks for the continued updates Alice.

    Milton Olin was part of last night's Grammy "In Remembrance" tribute during the award ceremony. Too bad the only reason why I recognized his name was because of this tragedy.

    Thanks, just now reading.
    Who would send 100+ text messages in a 7 hour period?
    I might send 100 in 6 months.

    You are clearly not a teenage girl.

    OK, we're going to hear the phrase "qualified immunity" a lot with this case. The no-texting law does not apply to cops in the performance of their duties either, and they are allowed to use their car computers while driving. Was he texting somebody at the department or a personal contact?

    I think it's INTERESTING that the sheriff's department employee: A sheriff’s sergeant responding to the crash examined Wood’s cellphone and the device showed no record of use during the time of the collision, the detective’s affidavit stated. Do they think that the six texts in the five minutes before the crash would not be found or are they just incompetent?

    Why do "public servants" go into full on turtle mode when something like this goes wrong? They stonewall, obfuscate & block any attempts to hold one of their own accountable and usually they're successful. The good news is that whatever settlement Olin's bereaved family gets will come out of OUR pockets as tax payers and very little will personally affect the actual deputy who cause this family so much pain with his negligence.

    Qualified immunity is supposed to protect peace officers from harassment during the performance of their duties, not shield them when they are CLEARLY negligent. I'm guessing Olin's family will have the financial resources and wherewithal to make the department squirm but most people would not!

    Protect and serve... yeah right!

    It takes just a moment for someone to delete the listings of recent texts/recent calls on a smartphone. Therefore, the sheriff may not have seen any recent texts/recent calls on the deputy's smartphone.

    They may not show up on the phone but they can be subpoena'd from the carrier.

    They were subpoena'd from the carrier. Hundred or so texts, many phone calls. Including texts in the minutes before the crash and a call several minutes after the crash.

    There is a discrepancy between the carrier's records and the smart phone's recent lists.

    Deleting text messages...sounds like someone was trying to cover their tracks. Hopefully the lawyer can use that to show the officer knew what they did was their fault, and was trying to tamper with the evidence.

    I don't disagree with your point but let's insert "alleged" discrepancy. Did he erase it or was the investigator incompetent or corrupt? Three options there, none of which are pleasant to contemplate.

    I really don't expect much out of this at all besides a lot of stonewalling, double talk and perhaps a paid leave until the public forgets about it. I know, I'm cynical.
