via Biking in L.A.:
But one thing sure to get a lot of cyclists’ blood boiling is the news that Steven Rush, sentenced to a wrist-caressing 10 days in jail for helping his daughter Dominique hide evidence in the heartless hit-and-run death of 17-year old cyclist Alex Romero, is already out from behind bars.
According to (bike lawyer) D.J. Wheels, Rush was taken into custody around noon on March 6th, the day he and Dominique were both sentenced. And released less than two days later, at 6 am on March 8th.
A virtually consequence-free Lindsey Lohan-ish spin through the judicial system.
Yeah, that will certainly send a message to anyone else considering hiding evidence of a crime.
As in go ahead. It’s no big deal. Just another dead cyclist lying in the road.
