_______________________

A pre-trial hearing was set for today in El Monte, California for the vehicular manslaughter case of Key Jaison Kim who accidentally killed George Steward and Sabrina Castillo October 15, 2015. Key Kim, 69, pleaded no contest to two misdemeanor counts of vehicular manslaughter in an open plea to the court. The open plea means a sentence was not negotiated with the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, according to officials.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Donna Hollingsworth sentenced Kim to five years of probation, 800 hours of community service and ordered him to complete multiple programs, including the Mothers Against Drunk Driving Victim Impact Program. His driver's license was also revoked for five years. He was not drunk and was not charged with drunk driving. He merely mistook the gas pedal for the brake which is a common cause of car accidents in some elderly people. MADD is just the main organization that provides the Victim Impact Program.

This is the official DA press release about the case.

An image from the hearing today. Key had a Korean translator.

"Pedal error" is a common cause of accidental deaths in car accidents with the elderly. We all remember the horrific Santa Monica Farmers Market pedal error crash. I'm sure this was probably the worst in the US if not the world. My stepfather had a pedal error accident at the age of 86.

Key Kim confessed to what happened to a Korean newspaper. This is a Google translation so read this very loosely. He obviously didn't murder two cars

"In the Hacienda Heights area
A Korean man arrested on charges of murdering two cars
He pleaded guilty in two years.
Supreme Court Judge Donna Hollingsworth said today (Tuesday)
Key Jaison Kim, 69 years old,

"I accidentally drove my Lexus car
I stepped on the accelerator, not the brake, and I got a Toyota truck.
This caused an 18-year-old man and woman on board to be killed
At the time, they had just graduated from Los Altos High School.
I was saddened by the surroundings."

Here is Sabrina Castillo's obituary.

Below is the case information.

Key Jaison Kim and his wife Young E Kim own a nice home in Hacienda Heights. It's 4 bed, 3 bath, 2,498 sf on an 11,878 sf lot built in 1986. They paid $409,000 for it in 1999. I'm sure the victims will sue him and his insurance company. He was born September 28, 1957.
