Joe Tamburino Discusses Marie Hall Case on WCCO Radio

Last Sunday, Attorney Joe Tamburino appeared on WCCO Radio to discuss the Marie J. Hall case. Hall, who is now being referred to as the “Vodka Swigging Speeder,” was charged with third-degree murder, criminal vehicular homicide, and criminal vehicular operation after going on an erratic and intoxicated speeding frenzy. According to reports, the 24-year-old drove around Bloomington at high speeds swigging vodka from the bottle before she eventually collided with a city snowplow.

The collision resulted in the death of 38-year-old Tyler Lenort, who had been climbing into his truck when Hall came barreling down the street. When emergency responders pulled Hall out of the wreckage, they detected a strong odor of alcohol. Later, when Hall was being interviewed by police, she explained that she had been speeding at 100 miles per hour as a way to “end all.” When she crashed into the city snowplow, she had been driving at an estimated 80 miles per hour.

Although it is unusual for an intoxicated driver to be charged with murder after causing a fatal accident, Attorney Tamburino explains that Hall's actions were particularly egregious. Because she had been driving at excessive speeds and drinking alcohol while behind the wheel, it is clear that she had no regard for her own safety – let alone the safety of others. As a result, it can be assumed that Hall was aware of the fact that her actions were likely to result in death or serious injury.
