In related news to Tracy Morgan, the Walmart driver who hit Morgan’s sprinter last June is hoping to get criminal charges dropped. The driver fills due to media coverage he won’t receive a fair trial. Complex fills us in.
In legal documents, as reported by TMZ, Kevin Roper claims that Walmart, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), Morgan’s lawyers, and the media have already convicted him in the eyes of the public — making it impossible for him to receive a fair and unbiased trial. He also concedes that others have admitted their wrongdoing in the June 2014 accident including Walmart, who issued a press release taking responsibility for what happened.
Guilty to proven innocent?
