It's a story you'll have to hear to believe: A man who pleaded guilty to killing 3 people in a DUI crash, then sued his victims! Now, the I-Team is looking into a new accusation: that's he's hiding his finances to keep the victims from getting a dime of his money.

The UK fraud squad would be all over this in a flash ,how is it so difficult for them to work the obvious out over there ? That family are pure scum .

It's amazing that someone who was so loaded on alcohol and drugs knows they didn't cause the accident. Crap like that killer and his parents should go to prison for life. Then take every cent they have and give it to the victims.

Attorneys are driving this....nobody else. Attorneys are the scum of Earth. They are on a level with telemarketers. Pretty far down the scum ladder.

Man. My husband was hit by a drunk driver. I'm sooo angry with her. As soon as we buried him and waited the normal traditional ways to respect the morning period. I went searching for this woman. The Devil beat me to her. I do know the last month of her life was sooo painful I know she begged to die. It gave me little comfort. I went against my tradional up bring. I still have hate in my heart. I see her mom and dad, her siblings, her children, her fuck toy. I remind them to pray to their God for their souls because they are just as responsible as she.

In 1994, David Belniak hit a pedestrian with his car, the woman later died, but David was never charged for her death. In 2003 after being arrested for another DUI, police found a literal GALLON of the date rape drug GHB in the trunk of David Belniak's vehicle. He pled no contest and served 17 months in prison for trafficking and the DUI. On Christmas Day in 2007, David Belniak was driving his truck while intoxicated on alcohol, Xanax, and cocaine. He was speeding, according to police he was estimated to be traveling at 75-85 mph in a 45 mph zone, before smashing into the back of a Chevrolet Tahoe SUV carrying a family that was stopped at a red light. He never even hit his brakes. His victims were Linda McWilliams, 66, her daughter, Denise Bassi, 50, and Denise's husband, Gerard Bassi, 51. Gerard Bassi died at the scene. Denise Bassi died in surgery that day. Linda McWilliams was taken off of life support a week later. Ray McWilliams, the man driving the SUV was seriously injured, and family members say he never fully recovered from his injuries and later died at 68 years of age. David Belniak pled guilty to three counts of DUI manslaughter and one count of felony DUI serious bodily injury, he was sentenced to 12 years in prison. During the entire court proceedings, even after the victims asked for an apology, he never uttered a word. David Belniak, who worked for his wealthy family who owned a large construction company and more than two dozen properties was estimated to be making over $100,000 per year from his salary and from collecting rent at his two apartment buildings. Within three weeks of the crash, he sold all of his assets to his parents, except for his home, which he sought a homestead exception for to keep it from being sold to pay for any potential legal judgements against him. He applied for the exemption the day before he went to prison. In 2012, David Belniak's attorney/sister sued the deceased driver of the SUV, alleging that the crash was the SUV driver's fault, despite David Belniak having pled guilty, despite having been intoxicated with alcohol, Xanax, and cocaine. Despite the SUV of his victims having been stopped at a red light. Despite having been speeding at 75-85 mph in a 45 mph zone and never having hit his breaks before smashing into the SUV and killing three people. He actually argued that the Florida Highway Patrol's investigation of the case was a "government-sanctioned assassination against one individual." David Belniak is a pathetic trash human being. His family that helped him hide his assets, helped him sue the estate of an innocent dead man and falsely accuse police, and helped him avoid paying the civil judgement that the jury awarded to the family members of the victims of his crime, that he actually pled guilty to, are also complete trash.
Get this case on reddit. Find out where this guy lives and ruin his and his family's lives.

Its stories like this that just encourage my true belief that Earth IS actually Hell. Its always the nice people that get "removed" unexpectedly and the bad people get to stay...and even get "rewarded" with free housing and food (Jail) while the people who follow all the rules Pay for everything. THINK ABOUT IT, whenever things like this happen, car crash, shot, whatever UNEXPECTED death, you NEVER see people on TV go "Ohhh that dude NEEDED to have a safe fall on him! He was an ASS!! He beat his girlfriend, robbed banks, killed pets, stole cars....". Its always seems to be "They were the sweetest person, read to the blind, donated money to Libraries, volunteered all their free time to others...."

Only in America. Horrible accident leaves 3 dead and the victim's family's biggest concern is how much money they can make out of this disaster.

To the people wanting to punish the family via their business... I can understand wanting to but remember that there are probably innocent people caught up in this too, like staff members, children & others who had no part in the actions of the family. Don’t make them suffer & destroy their livelihood because of the actions of a few! And the more business you take away from the family, the less they will be able to pay to the victims’ family

Darkstar Archangel (16 days ago)
Suing victims makes as much sense as trying to legalize terrorism. Or legalize a serial killer to rape more innocent children. The DUI driver and his family need to be tortured and murdered. The victims already lost their family members there's no reason for them to suffer and torment them even more by taking away more than lives in their family.

Suing the victims? This nonsense is why people engage in vigilante justice. This was unheard of, in the past.
David Medford (21 days ago)
Wow that guy is a real asshole. He'll get what he deserves eventually. The parents should be sued/ arrested for hiding the sons assets.
He was drunk, therefore he couldn't consent to the accident.
Douglas Rodrigues (22 days ago)
My thinking about this drunk driving jerk is more basic. If he did to my family what he has done to his victims, his low life parents would be burying their son.

How big of a piece of shit do you have to be to not only drive under the influence, but wreck and kill half a family, and go on to show no remorse and attempt to sue the VICTIM'S family!? Scumbag award of the century goes to this guy and his family. Jesus. If this were me (which it wouldn't because I don't drink and drive) but hypothetically if it were me, the guilt alone would be eating me alive, I'd cry myself to sleep every night knowing what I had done. I'd admit my wrongs, serve my time, and forever apologize to this family. What does this guy do? Sues them. I can't even.

That blatant lack of morals, merely following the law because of the consequences, you will ALWAYS find attached to humans who have lebanese eyes & a crooked nose. Too stereotypical for you ? I challenge you to go look for yourself. Certain genetic combinations have certain chemical properties in the moral center of the brain. BUT!!! I'm of opinion that you don't get money for dead people. They are dead. How dare you use your dead family for a profit ? typical americunts.
