Brendan Khuri's father tried to cover up for him
People blamed him for gifting his teenage son a $517,000 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ on his birthday in 2020, despite his ex-wife's objections. Monique's family demanded Brendan should be given a proper charge after an incident at Beverly Hills that infuriated the public.
As the story goes, the tycoon (surrounded by his bodyguards) laughed and joked around when an anonymous person shouted at him, "Killer!" As a result, the public deemed his reaction as an insult.
Brendan Khuri's accident killed a 32-year-old woman law school student. While she had to be cut free from the wreck, his son only received medical attention after the accident.
Brendan's driving license was revoked while his father took full responsibility for the accident. California 16-year-old teenagers can apply for instruction permits but should not drive alone until they pass their tests or turn 17.
His mother cried as he pleaded guilty to negligent vehicular manslaughter charges in Inglewood Juvenile Court. Meanwhile, the public deems James as a cold-hearted villain who is only concerned with his public image.
It is alleged that he spent money on clearing his online reputation. The man paid experts to flood articles (from late 2020 to early 2021) that linked him to the case.
After a backlash from people, the tycoon apologized to Monique's family through his Instagram page for employing a public relations agency to alter the accident's narrative.
An LAPD detective assured the public that the authorities would also investigate the street racing incident separately. The Audi was not involved in the accident but was found at the scene.
Also, Monique's family wanted James to face criminal charges since his affluence influenced the authorities to treat his son differently.
Brendan Khuri's update
What happened to James Khuri's son? Munoz's uncle, Richard Cartier, objected to him being put under house arrest amid the protests and trial, in vain. James' attorney, Mark Werksman, opposed the prosecutors' request to have Brendan sent to a juvenile camp.
He stated the teen sustained brain injuries and was diagnosed with autism, attention deficit disorder, and depression after the crash. Therefore, having him at a juvenile center for seven to nine months was a wrong decision.
Also, Karen Schiltz (psychologist) told the Los Angeles County Superior Court that Brendan would be victimized if held at the LA County juvenile camp. She argued that he must have suffered autism his entire life but was never diagnosed.
The court's verdict on Brendan Khuri's case was a house arrest in the mansion. Meanwhile, the Munoz and Khuri families' attorneys are working on a financial settlement for both families to heal. Also, the families are requesting privacy in this traumatic time. Did you think James Khuri's son received a just sentence?
Briefly.co.za also shared Chris Watts' story. Chris did not have any mental illness or disorder, and his wife loved posting videos of their family's happy moments on social media. However, he was the only person the cops arrested after finding his pregnant wife and daughters' corpses in a shallow grave and oil drums, respectively.
Shanann and her mother-in-law never got along. Cindy did not attend their wedding because she did not like Shanann. Later, Shanann accused Cindy of trying to kill her children. A few days before Shanann's death, Chris' mistress/colleague shopped for wedding dresses online. Surprisingly, the same mistress helped the police arrest Chris, who claimed he could never kill his family to be with a mistress. So what happened?
