Hi! I'm watching Lockdown and there was a story about Scott Crandall. He accidentally rear-ended a car. Someone in the car he rear-ended got out, punched him and sped off. He got mad, followed the car and rear-ended it so that it went into a telephone pole. A 16 year old pregnant woman was injured and miscarried. He was charged with involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to 7 years in prison.
I'm not familiar with US law, but how could he be charged with involuntary manslaughter if the fetus had not reached "personhood" status? Do you agree with the ruling?
