Re: Blackhawks Kane charged with attacking cabbie
Cabbies lawyer speaks about the incident:
Andrew LoTempio, an attorney for the cab driver, told WGN radio in Chicago on Monday that he thinks Sunday’s incident was blown out of proportion.
“There was a dispute over the fee and it just kind of escalated from there,” LoTempio told the station. “It was not really a robbery. That is probably a large distortion of what happened.”
Asked if the case would end up as a felony, he said: “Absolutely not.”
“I think we should be able to work things out,” he added.
Kane is scheduled for a court hearing next Monday in a Buffalo courtroom. He has pleaded not guilty to felony robbery and misdemeanor counts of theft and criminal mischief. His cousin, James Kane, faces the same charges
Sounds to me like Kane may have to part with more than 20 cents to make this case go away.
If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.
