Martin Joel Erzinger is a financial manager responsible for over $1 billion in client accounts. He hit a surgeon riding a bicycle on the side of the road, causing permanent injuries, and left the scene of the accident. Now the Colorado 5th district attorney Mark Hurlbert is refusing to press felony charges. Why?
Felony convictions have some pretty serious job implications for someone in Mr. Erzinger's profession [...]
Financial regulations require to Erzinger to notify his clients of felony charges within thirty days, and that would endanger his job. Action info past the jump.
How much money you're responsible for does not control how exempt you are from a crime. Under Colorado law, hit-and-run incidents that cause severe bodily injury are a felony, and Hurlbert is refusing to observe these laws in order to protect a rich Wall Street fund manager. Contact his office and the office of Colorado attorney general John Suthers, and urge them to do the right thing.

And finally, a change.org petition (not mine) for Hurlbert to do the right thing.
