Kane Agrees to Plea Deal
Well, as expected, Kane pleaded guilty to lesser charges and as a result has to issue a written apology to the cab driver and stay out of legal trouble for a year.
What this essentially says is that the evidence against Kane was strong enough that he most likely would have been convicted of more serious charges had this gone to court. In other words, odds are him and his cousin beat the cabbie up over twenty cents. I still can’t believe a person can be that shallow.
Speaking of shallow, his apologies, though I realize they’re crafted in legal-eze, for “causing pain” to everyone and for being in a “regrettable situation“, don’t really get to the core of what happened and instead perpetuate the perception that he really didn’t do anything wrong, he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and the fact that people are emotionally hurt and scarred by this, to the extent that it was due to his being in the wrong place at the wrong time, he’s sorry for that.
Dude, step up and apologize publicly to the cabbie for beating him up. If not that, go face to face with the dude and be a man.
It will be interesting to see how he’s treated by the fans when the season starts.
