County District Attorney’s Office would not be pressing charges against the sheriff’s deputy who struck and killed Milt Olin in Calabasas last December. The sheriff’s deputy was typing on his mobile computer in his patrol car when he struck Olin at 48 miles per hour. Olin, a prominent entertainment attorney and former executive for Napster, was pronounced dead at the scene.
