Should a wrong way driver doing time for the deaths of two people get another chance?
Herman Bank is asking that the verdict in his manslaughter case be set aside because he didn't get a chance at a plea bargain.
Bank is serving a five to 15 year sentence for the deaths of two young men in May 2007. Bank testified Wednesday that his lawyer at the time, did not try to plea bargain. The prosecutor said the case did not deserve plea bargaining because there was a lot of evidence against Bank.
Court records show he was high on cocaine when he drove the wrong way on 590 and crashed into the car with 18-year-old Henry Rivera, of Irondequoit, and 20-year-old Pedro Hernandez, of Rochester, inside. Both were killed in the crash.
