The story of the dentist who allegedly got away with murder and who was acquitted in a wrongful death lawsuit is getting a new chapter.
According to The New York Times, the story of dentist Andrew Hahn is getting new life.
Hahn, who has since died, was arrested in 2012 and charged with manslaughter in the death of his son, who was crushed by a car in 2011.
Prosecutors say Hahn was at the wheel of the car when it hit and killed his son.
His son was wearing a helmet at the time, but a toxicology report found Hahn had a blood alcohol level of 0.15.
He was charged with child neglect, driving under the influence, and careless driving.
The car, however, was registered to another person, and Hahn told investigators that he did not have the right to drive it, the Times reported.
Haney, who had been a dentist for the past three years, said he was driving home from work on April 19, 2011, when he saw a silver Honda Accord driving on a red light and pulled over.
Haney said he saw his son being dragged off the road, but he was not sure what happened next.
Haley said she was shocked when Hahn got out of the Accord and tried to take off his helmet.
She said he pulled her son out of his car and placed him in the backseat of the Honda.
Hahns attorney, James D. McClellan, told the Times that the prosecution’s version of events was “incredibly implausible,” adding that Hahn “had never even been driving a car before.”
The Times said Hahn’s attorney said his client “could not have possibly left the scene of the accident.”
McClellan added that Haney did not know that his son was in the car, and that Hahns behavior was completely “unsafe.”
He said Hahnes behavior “was totally inconsistent” with his conduct as a dentist.
Hays attorney, Stephen M. Miller, told The Times that his client did not intend to hurt his son and that he “did not intend for anything to happen.”
He also said he believed Hahn may have been “acting out of anger” and that his behavior “does not meet the standard of recklessness that is required of a motorist.”
