Bobby Cann killed on Clybourn last night. Critical Mass Tribute?

Hi everyone,

My dear, close friend was killed on his way home from work last night. His name is Bobby Cann. Friends and I gathered at his house after to mourn. He was my best friend. He was such an advocate for cycling and safety. I met him years ago while working at REI. I want to have tomorrow's Mass in his honor. Any ideas/help?

Thank you all,

Phil

A Jury Trial will be held if the Defendant wants a Jury Trial.   But a defendant can knowingly waive a Jury Trial.  And this might be one of those cases where the Defendant might want to waive a jury trial.

Much thanks. God bless.

 Here,is a short video I took at last months Ride of Silence. You might see Bobby in it. I took a lot photos from the ride. If you or his Family would like to look thru them, let me know.

It's been very hard to follow all the discussion, so it's very likely I missed something, but I have an ongoing nagging concern that the victim's family does not seem to have sought legal representation.

They have. They hired a well-known, reputable attorney to represent Bobby yesterday morning.

Breaking: 10 years' jail time for drunk boater who killed 5-year-old child:

...in Lake County

...with cocaine in his (boater's) system

...the victim was related to several judges and attorneys in Lake County.

not sure this is the best comparison.  The off duty cop who killed a 13 year old cyclist in '09/10 and fled got 3 years.

Good points, but I'm not sure your counter example is the best either. The case is three or four years older and involved a cop. I interpreted the news this morning as a good sign.

Thanks Ian.  I had similar thoughts but I wanted to see what a more informed perspective than my own might offer.
