Walmart Truck Driver Involved In Tracy Morgan's Car Crash Has Been Charged With Manslaughter

Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!Tracy MorganWalmart

He's also being charged with vehicular homicide and aggravated assault.

So much for that plan.

Kevin Roper, the Walmart truck driver who hit Tracy Morgan's limo last year, wanted to get his criminal charges thrown out — but it looks like that didn't work exactly out.

On Wednesday, a New Jersey grand jury indicted Kevin for his involvement in the accident that killed comedian James McNair and injured the 30 Rock alum.

The grand jury formally charged the driver with first-degree aggravated manslaughter, second-degree vehicular homicide, and third-degree aggravated assault.

The trucker wanted the charges dismissed because his lawyer, David Glassman, said the actor's settlement with the department store drew a lot of attention toward the case.

The attorney claimed this would prevent Roper's trial from being a fair and impartial one.

Ugh.

A Staten Island grand jury on Wednesday has decided against filing criminal charges against a NYPD officer named Daniel Pantaleo for the death of Eric Garner.

Eric, the father of six children, was killed after being placed in a chokehold by the police officer on July 17th. He was allegedly resisting arrest.

A cell phone video, which you can view HERE, was taken of the event and sparked outrage across the country… because, you see, NYPD officers are BANNED from using chokeholds.

A small victory for Chris Brown might be coming!

The troublemaking singer is in the midst of an assault case, but he is lobbying for the charges to be thrown out and, we must admit, his argument seems pretty solid!

Breezy's clever lawyer, Mark Geragos, is claiming that prosecutors got an unfair advantage in the lawsuit for brawling with a fan in Washington D.C. last year.

Mark's insisting that the case be thrown out completely because prosecutors only brought the case before

Aaron Hernandez's Cousin Faces Charges After Refusing To Testify

Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersViolenceFamilyFootball

aaron hernandez cousin tanya singleton faces charges after refusing to testify

It sounds like Aaron Hernandez's legal issues are spreading out to his family.

The former New England Patriot's cousin Tanya Singleton was arrested and has been in custody since August 1st after she refused to testify in front of a Grand Jury in Aaron's case.

She was indicted on a criminal contempt charge for her refusal to testify and is expected to be arraigned later today in court in Fall River.

Some feel that Tanya is trying to protect Aaron, as she has a connection to Ernest Wallace, one of the men who was riding with him the night of the murder. Sources say she purchased him a bus ticket soon after Odin Lloyd was killed.

Tanya could be withholding some important information, and if she does eventually testify, there's a possibility it can lead to a huge breakthrough.

Aaron still needs to appear in court in the future for his arraignment, but a date still hasn't been set.

Aaron Hernandez appeared in court earlier today where a Grand Jury formally indicted him for his connection to Odin Lloyd's murder.

Just last month, the former New England Patriot had a probable cause hearing pushed back so prosecutors would have more time to build their case, and it sounds like they may have found the evidence they were looking for.

Investigators got their hands on footage from Aaron's home surveillance system where he appears to be holding a
