A South Carolina driver. who has had 13 speeding convictions in the past 10 years, lost control of his Maserati while driving 85+ MPH and smashed into a home, killing one of its occupants. The driver, John Ludwig, has also been charged with criminal domestic violence twice in the past six months. The case has rallied a neighborhood together and brought allegations of privileged treatment for wealthy citizens. Mr. Ludwig is reportedly worth millions of dollars and has certainly shown a less than healthy respect for the law with his repeated speeding and violence charges. However, there are those who argue that Ludwig has become a target because of his wealth and success.
Do you think the fact that Mr. Ludwig was driving a Maserati at the time of the accident has negatively influenced his situation? If he had been driving a Camry would people be taking a softer stance?
