    Monique Munoz (32) killed by Brendan Khuri (17) driving a Lamborghini at a "high rate of speed"

    https://abcnews.go.com/US/17-year-la..._headlines_hed

    A 17-year-old Lamborghini driver has admitted to vehicular manslaughter in connection with a Los Angeles car crash that killed a 32-year-old woman, prosecutors said.

    The teenager involved in the deadly crash admitted the petition Friday -- the equivalent of a guilty plea for juvenile court -- and was placed on house arrest, the Los Angeles District Attorney's office said. He is expected to return to juvenile court on June 30 for a disposition setting hearing. He'll wear an ankle monitor while he awaits sentencing, ABC Los Angeles station KABC reported.

    The driver of the Lamborghini, who has not been publicly identified because of his age, was arrested on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter on Feb. 23, police said. The district attorney's office filed charges on April 7 after completing the investigation.

    Friends and family of Monique Mu?oz, the woman killed in the February crash, have held several protests calling for justice in her death.

    A group of protesters gathered outside Inglewood juvenile court Friday, holding posters with pictures of Mu?oz and chanting, "What do we want? Justice! When do want it? Now!"

    "As far as justice is concerned, we want him to go to prison and understand the consequences of his doing," Richard Cartier, Mu?oz's uncle, told reporters after the arraignment hearing.

    Munoz's family had been hoping the 17-year-old would be charged as an adult.

    "You're a 17-year-old kid, driving an adult car, acting like an adult, you should be tried as an adult," Munoz's stepfather, Isaac Cardona, told "Good Morning America" last month.

    "I want the person to be held accountable for his action," Mu?oz's mother, Carol Cardona, added.

    "She had so much life left," Carol Cardona said. "I miss her so much."

    Mu?oz, of Hawthorne, California, was driving home from work shortly after 5 p.m. on Feb. 17 in west Los Angeles when a black Lamborghini SUV collided with her Lexus sedan, police said. Her car was totaled. The Los Angeles Fire Department responded and rendered aid, but she was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

    Following the crash, LAPD West Traffic said it was a "costly reminder for everyone to slow down." The teen was driving at a "high rate of speed" when he slammed into the Lexus, LAPD Capt. Brian Wendling told the Los Angeles Times.

    The father of the 17-year-old driver apologized to Mu?oz's family "for the tragic loss of their daughter."

    "There are no words I can say to alleviate the pain that you are experiencing," James Khuri, an LA entrepreneur, said in an Instagram post last month.

    Brendan Khuri, 17, admits to vehicular manslaughter, here's how many years he could spend in prison

    The minor, a multimillionaire admitted he was behind the wheel of the Lamborghini that slammed into the 32-year-old Monique Munoz's car, which resulted in her death.

    James Khuri's 17-year-old son Brendan Khuri has admitted he was behind the vehicle causing the fatal car crash near Olympic Boulevard and Overland Avenue in Los Angeles. Brendan admitted to driving the Lamborghini sports utility vehicle that crashed into 32-year-old Monique Munoz's car resulting in her death.

    The teenager admitted to one count of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence in Inglewood Juvenile Court and has been ordered to continue being confined to his home until the next court date on June 30. The sentencing will likely take place in August according to his defense attorney Mark Werksman.

    Who is Brendan Khuri?

    Brendan, 17, is the son of James and has currently has no charges filed against him because he is a minor. The decision will be made by the District Attorney?s office, according to the police. Brendan was behind the wheel of a Lamborghini SUV. According to a Daily Mail report, an investigator, supervising detective James Dickson of the LAPD?s West Traffic department, said, "We?ve done a filing. That filing was presented to the LA County Juvenile DA. It?s currently in his office.

    "The arrest charge was 192(c)(1), negligent vehicular manslaughter. I can?t regurgitate what we found, but based upon multiple witness statements that corroborate one another, it?s clear that there was gross negligence," he said.



    James issued an apology on Instagram saying: ?I am aware that the time it is taking me to communicate this has caused further pain for everyone affected." He added: ?Knowing that this will never do justice for the family of Monique Munoz, I want to apologize to the Munoz family for the tragic loss of their daughter... Still, I want to offer my support in any way you will allow me to. My family and I pray for the Munoz family."

    According to Scallywag and Vagabond, Brendan was in the hospital after suffering a brain injury in the accident. "The kid is beyond remorseful, he cries every day," said Candace Green, one of the close friends of the family. "He?s been in the hospital since the day of the accident with a brain injury so he did not walk away from this with cuts and scrapes. He is petrified. He has been somewhat under the care of the police. They have been at the hospital, they know what?s going on," she added.

    What does the petition say?

    The petition on Change. Org reads: "James Khuri is a wealthy businessman. Two weeks ago, his 17-year-old son (unlicensed) crashed a Lamborghini going 120mph into 32-year-old Monique Munoz. She was killed immediately. Charges have not been filed, and James is paying off the media so they do not report what has happened. Monique needs justice, we cannot let people get away with homicide because they are wealthy."

    There have been comments on the site as well. "I?m tired of people with money that could get away with things like this that kid needs to be put in jail," one of the comments said.

    His Father is a complete douchebag. This has been being closely reported on out here. The Mother didn't agree with giving him that car and the Father was always bragging about racing other cars on his Instagram. I may be mistaken, but I've also heard that the Son didn't even have a full license yet.

    I think the Father should be charged with something, honestly. Gross Negligence? Endangering a minor? I don't know. It just seems like he encouraged this behavior so holds some kind of responsibility in all of this.

    Lets give a kid a Lambo, what a great idea!

    Any person I knew who got sports cars at 16 totalled them. Luckily they didnt take anyone else out.

    The father ought to be charged as well,you don't give a 17 y/o inexperianced,let alone unlicensed drive a powerful sports car. It makes no difference how wealthy you are, that is plain and simple negligence on the fathers part and contributed to that womans unfortunate death. I hope that young man as well as his father are tortured mercilessly with the thoughts of what happened.
