North Carolina: Rabah Samara finds being sober behind the wheel not his deal; now gets easy treatment from another silly judge

A Cary man involved in a hit-and-run 11 years ago that killed a reporter has since faced three drunken driving charges, much to the dismay of the reporter’s parents.

Stephen Gates, a sports reporter at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, was changing a tire on the shoulder of Interstate 40 in Orange County on Oct. 4, 2003, when he was hit and killed.

Rabah Samara was a passenger in the Cadillac Escalade that hit Gates, but when driver Emily Caveness stopped, he got behind the wheel and drove off. He said at the time that he thought they had hit a deer, although prosecutors said two truck drivers had told him that they had hit Gates.
