Wait...why did you get community service and probation if they couldn't charge you with anything other than crashing? new jersey is fuckin weird...
Sucks that your friend went out like that. R.I.P.
Supposed to be aggravated assault with an automobile. If I was intoxicated it carries a sentence of 5 - 10 years in state prison. I spoke to the prosecution after all the investigation stuff was done and they offered that and I just jumped on it and signed all the papers. It was a few months between the accident and when I had a court date. I was quite a bit nervous for that time.
They knew how bad Trevor's condition was and I guess it looked a little better that I got some punishment and didn't walk away. At that point I was happy to take it.
