Leyrtiz releases statement

Jim Leyritz finally acknowledged his alleged drunk driving accident that killed a Florida mother of two.

From the New York Daily News:

"Due to the tragic and unfortunate events of Dec. 28, 2007, Mr. Leyritz and his family wish to express their deepest sympathies and condolences" to the Veitch family, Ostrow said.

Ostrow declined further comment, except to say he was Leyritz's friend and lawyer.

A lawyer for Veitch's family, Richard Abramowitz, offered a terse reaction, saying the woman's loved ones "are upset, and rightfully so."

Veitch's heartbroken husband, Jordan, and her two children, ages 5 and 13, were preparing for her memorial service today.

"We are mourning the tragedy," Leyritz's ex-wife, Karrie, told the Daily News yesterday. "It's terrible what happened."
This is very tragic, and hopefully Leyritz is punished to the fullest extent of the law. There is no defending a situation like this.
