Drunk Driver Who Killed Angel’s Pitcher Set For Trial

Law Offices of William W. Bruzzo

The trial for Andrew Thomas Gallo set for July 26 will not be postponed. Mr. Gallo killed Angel’s pitcher Nick Adenhart and two others on April 10, 2009, while driving intoxicated. The judge presiding over the trial, Richard F. Toohey, declined to hear the motion to postpone the trial and discussed this with the attorneys while in-chambers. Gallo’s defense attorney Jacqueline Goodman Rubio stated in her motion to continue the case that she needs more time to prepare a change of venue motion and otherwise prepare for trial. According to the Orange County Register she has been on the case since April 16. Rubio will argue for the change of venue because she believes Gallo cannot get a fair trial in Orange County due to the emotional connection of the fans and the general public toward the victims and the Angels baseball team.
