Legal experts and journalists have a gut feeling that Marco Muzzo will plead guilty on January 6th, when he plans on physically showing up in court for his 5th bail hearing date on charges of impaired-driving offences and six additional charges related to the dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
Most believe that lawyer Brian Greenspan is leaving Muzzo behind bars over Christmas to show that Muzzo remorseful and in no rush to regain freedom, and that in the new year the wealthy suspect will file a guilty plea and offer a generous financial package to compensate the family for their loss. Similar cases have resulted in a sentence of eight to ten ears in prison.
On Thursday, Marco Muzzo’s bail hearing was held over for a fourth time.
His 5th court date will be January 6, 2016.
Muzzo has been behind bars since late September, and will remain there over Christmas.
29-year-old Marco Muzzo is facing a dozen impaired-driving offences and six additional charges related to the dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
His initial bail hearing was set for October 19. Muzzo’s lawyer Brian Greenspan had it delayed to November 12.
When court reconvened on the 12th, Greenspan asked that the hearing be delayed again to November 26.
Greenspan asked for more time again, and the hearing was delayed to Thursday, December 10.
Muzzo’s SUV T-boned a van in Vaughan on September 27, killing three children, aged 2, 5, and 9, and their grandfather, 65. All were members of the Neville-Lake family. It is alleged that he was impaired at the time.
