@KingsCourt"They may need to raise money for Rowley to pay for
the 14 year olds faked medical costs and the lawsuit that will surely follow.
You know how lawyers circle like vultures waiting for an opportunity to make
money."Let's be serious here. No attorney is going to take
a case that's a stone cold loser. Do you think a Utah jury is going to
feel sorry for the driver who fled cops in a stolen car? The attorney
doesn't get a penny unless he wins in a civil suit, and the costs of
putting such a case forward are huge. In theory, the burden of costs is on the
client, but since the attorney usually fronts those costs, he'd have to be
nuts to take a case like that. He'd also be taking a risk of court
sanctions for frivolous filing. Attorneys may be many things, but they're
generally not stupid.

Assuming that the guy he helped stopped is convicted, part of the legal
financial obligations imposed by the court will be restitution. The good news
for at least some of the generous people who helped fix the truck is that
anything that covers the cost of restoring the truck to the condition it was in
before the accident will have to be repaid to them by the other driver, along
with damage to the car he stole and anything else he damaged along the way.
Well done Mr. Rowley well done.Class act by all the sponsors who
chipped in to fix his truck which is beautiful by the way. I will make sure to
frequent your establishments as much as I can.Finally some one who
truly loves and protects his community gets the recognition they deserve.One for the good guy's!
So great that the community would do this for him...just as great that he did
something for the community.
