Relatives of a Monique Munoz, who was killed in a West Los Angeles crash, pleaded with a judge to give the maximum sentence to a teenage boy. He was driving a Lamborghini SUV at a high-rate of speed when he struck her vehicle.
The boy, who was 17 at the time but is now 18, was charged with vehicular manslaughter in April.
On Thursday, it will be decided what his punishment will be.
On Wednesday, prosecutors said they wanted him to be sentenced to a juvenile camp. However, his lawyer stated that he should be in a private program.
At the time of the collision, the teenager was going 106 mph. The speed limit was 35 mph in the zone, and traffic was backing up.
He had previously been stopped for speeding and only had a driving permit.
Munoz’s family is outraged that charges weren’t filed quickly enough, citing the influence of his father, James Khuri, a billionaire real estate giant.
The teen seemed emotional during the hearing.
