Fatal Belltown car accident

Corrected version

Accused man a repeat offender

How the heck did Curtis E. Jones get away with 17 convictions for driving with a suspended license? [“$750,000 arrest warrant issued in fatal accident,” NW Friday, July 29.]

Someone like him does not respect the law and must be put behind bars where he cannot have access to a vehicle.

Our justice system is badly broken. I beg the legislators to do a better job of fixing it.

Information in this photo caption, originally published at 6:29 a.m. on Aug. 1, 2013, was corrected at 9:50 a.m. on Aug. 1, 2013. A previous version of this caption incorrectly stated that Curtis E. Jones was wanted on a $750,000 arrest warrant. He has been arrested on that warrant, and is currently being held at the King County Jail. Additionally, the link to the related article in this letter originally said that the article was published July 19. It was actually published on July 29.
