Ala. Man who Ran Down Deputy Apologizes To Family

October 05, 2011  | 

A day after he was convicted of running over and killing a Lee County Sheriff's deputy, Lance Henderson offered an emotional apology to the deputy's family.

Henderson said, "I want to tell the family that I'm very sorry, and I ask that you one day will learn to forgive me."

Henderson was convicted of capital murder on Tuesday for running over and killing Deputy James Anderson. A jury is now deliberating on whether to reccommend the death penalty for Henderson. At least 10 voters are needed.

Anderson died Sept. 24, 2009, of traumatic asphyxia, caused by Henderson's car crushing his chest and preventing him from breathing.

Prosecutors testified that the manner of Anderson's death was especially heinous and cruel. The deputy lay under the vehicle—unable to breathe, unable to move and being burned by the vehicle.

Interesting how "very sorry" these slugs tell the court they are after they have been caught and convicted. Especially if they think it will get them a lighter sentence or in this case, avoid the death penalty. I hope the prosecutor will get at least the ten votes needed to get a death penalty out of the jury. If he gets death that means he only gets about fifteen or twenty more years to live, on the taxpayers’ dollar of course.
