Arsonist on Trial Demands Limo Ride for Witnesses
A Detroit, Michigan man facing arson charges in connection with a fire that injured seven Detroit firefighters has demanded that the government pay for a limousine service to transport ten witnesses to his trail in Ann Arbor. Calvin Jones, a self-employed auto mechanic, is scheduled to stand trial on June 28 for his alleged role in helping to set a fire that gutted a department store and led to injuries that paralyzed one firefighter and seriously injured six more. Jones claims that the witnesses are poor and don’t own their own transportation, making it very difficult for them to attend the trial. He claims that the witnesses are crucially important for his defense and that renting a limo for them is the most cost-effective way to transport them to his trial.
Jones’ codefendant in the trial, Samson Wright, pleaded guilty in connection with the fire and is expected to get 40 years in prison when his sentence is handed down in August. Jones also faces a 40-year sentence if convicted on all charges, and his request for a trial in Detroit was denied.
We have had some unusual requests from our guests over the years, and very seldom do we turn them down. However, an alleged arsonist on trial or a court requesting transportation for trial witnesses has never requested our San Francisco limousine services. Our guests most commonly rent our Bay Area limos for weddings, concerts, sporting events, anniversaries and occasions far more joyous and less serious than court trials. That said, we would certainly be willing to honor requests for luxury transportation to and from a trial just as long as it is legal.
That is pretty much our philosophy when evaluating our guests’ requests for customizing their San Francisco limousine experiences. If it is legal, we seldom turn down a request. In fact, we often augment our guests’ requests by suggesting ideas of our own drawn from our many years in the business. Over the years, our San Francisco limos have transported many thousands of happy guests to many different types of gatherings, and this experience allows us to tailor each limo ride to our guests’ preferences.
If you’re thinking about a San Francisco limo rental for a special event this summer and prefer to do business with a locally owned and operated limousine company that knows how to anticipate the needs of each guest, call NLS Limo today at 1-800-339-8936.
