look at this, this james ryan he is about to go on trial for vehicular homicide. he was not behind the wheel when a police officer was struck and killed. he was legally drunk at the time. the officer was investigating a few minutes later an suv didn't see ryan's car crashed into it and killed the officer. all right. here is where we are now. ryan on the left is charged in the death and faces 25 years in prison. the suv driver was never charged. if we needed you today is the day. how are they using this. this is causation foreseeability. >> they said it was foreseeable
pulled over on an intersection that could lead to an accident and crashes that that result was foreseeable to him. he is criminally liable. >> couldn't you make the case, make the case with the police officer they have a certain risk and pulling someone over and exposing yourself on the side of the road may be a normal expected risk that they're going to take, right. >> that is true and think about where this could go. >> let me say this first, though, we don't see this in criminal law. this is on the an aberration and on the fringes of law, we don't prosecute them for criminal negligence or foreseeability. that is the few cases that come through, not the mainstay but this can lead to some incredible results if you think about it. if you are caught speeding and you get pulled over and someone come innocence and causes an
it is foreseeable that you are pulled over there could be an accident. there are a lot of results that's the reason why most of the time you don't see this. this does set a dangerous precedent if we go down this type of law for all criminal cases. >> sure n all fairness we don't know the story. >> maybe there is something else that has the prosecutors wanting to go after him. what is the end result? it is hard to put you on the spot. what is the likelihood of a conviction. >> you hit the nail on the head. there are two things driving this. an officer doing his job and he different category. and involves someone drinking and driving. something that this country takes very seriously because of madd and the deaths that have occurred on the highways. when you combine them, that's one of the reasons this has gone on and this far down the road. i don't think he will be convicted.
is a stretch but if he gets convicted the case will go up to the court. and if it turned it back before when the judge it will have to go beyond the appealate court the new york appeals court that's where it will end up. i don't foresee that it will keep this conviction. >> the other car that caused the crash that killed him f they stay at the scene there is no likelihood of charging them, it was an accident. >> there was an accident but they are parked on the side of the road could you argue he was negligent and not paying attention to hit the car. could you argue that he is responsible for this as well. and that's why this case is unique you don't see this negligence and this being extended to a lot of criminal cases. we require the intent to commit a crime.
