I know theres been some comments about racing etc. I for obvious reasons have been following the hearing....heres an excerpt from testimony at the last hearing....
The driver responsible for accident tried to plea for lesser charges, he was denied.
Newport Beach Officer Todd Hughes testified that "Kirby admitted to driving his Porsche too fast and losing control of the car".
Newport Beach Officer Todd Hughes also said "Kirby, 51 said he sped his Porsche closer to Lewis’ Ferrari in order for his passenger – a woman he was taking on a date – to see the sports car".
"As he sped closer, he lost control of his car and spun 360 degrees", Hughes said.
“He stated he was driving too fast,’’ Hughes said.
Investigators have said they found receipts in Kirby's wallet that indicated he was drinking earlier that evening at two bars in San Juan Capistrano and Irvine.
The judge denied Kirby the opportunity to plead guilty to vehicular manslaughter in exchange for a lighter sentence. Deputy District Attorney Jason Baez wants Kirby to spend more than 18 years behind bars.
Kirby, who remains jailed in lieu of $500,000 bail, will next appear in court for his felony arraignment on Sept. 21.
