Former New York Yankees World Series hero Jim Leyritz was sentenced Thursday to one year's probation and fined $500 for a drunk driving conviction, a far lesser penalty than he had faced before a jury decided he wasn't responsible for a woman's death in a 2007 traffic crash.
Former major league baseball player Jim Leyritz had enough time to stop before a fatal 2007 car crash but was too drunk to react to a traffic light and should be convicted of DUI manslaughter, a Florida prosecutor told jurors in a closing argument Thursday.
It's the defense's turn to present evidence in the Florida DUI manslaughter trial of former major league baseball player Jim Leyritz.
Former big-league baseball player Jim Leyritz was not drunk prior to a 2007 crash that killed a 30-year-old woman despite blood tests showing otherwise, his attorney said Monday, adding that Leyritz had a yellow light rather than a red one seconds before the collision.
The prosecution rested Wednesday in the DUI manslaughter trial of former major league baseball player Jim Leyritz, after a crash reconstruction expert said Leyritz wasn't speeding before the crash that killed a 30-year-old woman.
Prosecutors were barred Tuesday from using an illegal blood test in the DUI manslaughter trial of former major league ballplayer Jim Leyritz to calculate how drunk he was at the time of a fatal December 2007 crash.
"He is a first offender, plain and simple," Bogenschutz said, adding that the sentence should be the same "whether it be Jim Leyritz or Jim Smith."
his attorney David Bogenschutz said that was far too severe for a first offense DUI.
