Walmart truck driver in Tracy Morgan crash wants criminal charges dismissed
The truck driver who crashed into Tracy Morgan’s limo while driving a Walmart truck wants the criminal charges against him dismissed because, he says, Walmart has made it impossible for him to be able to get a fair trial.
According to TMZ, Kevin Roper said in legal documents that Walmart had been flooding the media with admissions of guilt and had already admitted responsibility for the accident, making his own case difficult because the shopping giant had practically already handed him a guilty verdict.
Roper said that between Walmart’s admissions and Morgan’s lawyer, the media was filled with so many accounts of his guilt that there was already a perception of his having been guilty before being proven innocent. So, he has asked for the charges against him to be dropped.
