Judge denies request for lesser charges

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A California judge Friday denied a request to dismiss or lessen charges against 23-year-old Andrew Gallo.

Prosecutors say Gallo was a drunken driver in a crash that killed Los Angeles Angels pitcher and former Cedar Rapids Kernels player Nick Adenhart and two of his friends in California 16 months ago.

Gallo has pleaded not guilty, and faces more than 50 years in prison if convicted.
