An Academy Award winning screenwriter was criminally charged with the DUI death in near Los Angeles. Roger Avary, the writer of “Pulp Fiction” was charged with manslaughter in the death that resulted from his Southern California DUI almost a year ago.
After completing a full and thorough investigation of all of the facts, law enforcement charged the Ojai resident. Avary pled not guilty to the charges of vehicular manslaughter. The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department officials stated that Avary was driving drunk and his car slid into a telephone pole fatally injuring a passenger, Andreas Zini, who was visiting from Italy. Avary’s wife was thrown from the car and received sever injuries, but survived.
The prosecution could have filed the more sever charge of “Watson Murder” for the DUI death. Apparently, Avary hired a Los Angeles pre-filing DUI defense attorney. By doing so, facts and other information can be brought to the attention of law enforcement resulting in a more clear refined case being filed, sparing Avary a life behind bar.
