http://www.tampabay.com/news/courts/...ictims/1210532David Belniak had drugs in his system and never braked when he slammed into the back of a family's car stopped at a red light on Christmas Day 2007. Three people died.
In August, Belniak pleaded guilty to three counts of DUI manslaughter and was sentenced to 12 years in prison. He never said a word in court, not even when the victims' children begged him for an apology.
But he is voicing his opinion now.
He's saying he's not responsible for the crash.
And he wants to be paid for his suffering.
Last month, Belniak's attorney filed a lawsuit against the now-deceased driver of the other car, alleging the crash was the victim's fault. Attorney Debra A. Tuomey, who is also Belniak's sister, said the Florida Highway Patrol's investigation of the case was a "government sanctioned assassination against one individual."
