According to statements made by attorneys on Wednesday, a settlement in the lawsuit involving the family of a woman who was murdered when a 17-year-old driver slammed his father’s Lamborghini into her car in Los Angeles has been reached for $18.85 million. On February 17, 2021, when Monique Munoz, age 32, was driving home from her job at a hospital, she was struck by a Lamborghini SUV driven by Brendan Khuri, who ran a red light.

Just previous to the collision with Munoz’s vehicle, the prosecution claimed that Khuri had been racing another vehicle at speeds in excess of one hundred miles per hour while weaving in and out of traffic lanes. Near the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, Munoz was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

In September, Munoz’s family initiated a legal complaint against the defendant. According to Daniel Ghyczy, an attorney representing the family, the deal that was struck this week will make it possible for her family members to “finally achieve some closure for this awful catastrophe.”

It was never about the money for the Munoz family; it was about acknowledging Brendan Khuri’s misbehavior that led to the murder of their only daughter and making sure that he was held accountable for his actions. “It was never about the money for the Munoz family. “The resolution reached today is a vindication of their efforts and brings us one step closer to achieving justice,” Ghyczy said in a statement.

According to CBS Los Angeles, James Khuri released a statement on Instagram in which he expressed his condolences to those who had known Munoz and said that he was devastated by the fact that nothing could bring her back from the dead.

According to what he had to say, “I hope that the $18.85 million insurance settlement will construct a fresh beginning that will honor her soul.”

The financial compensation might end up being more than $25 million, according to the attorneys representing Munoz’s family. The judge made the decision on Wednesday to prolong the case to a later date, at which time the total restitution that the family would be required to pay will be established.

The Beverly Hills Police Department had previously cited Brendan Khuri for driving at excessive speeds, which resulted in the impoundment of the Lamborghini that he was driving at the time. According to the attorneys, the father gave back the SUV to his son within a span of just two days. After three months, Munoz was involved in a collision that ultimately proved fatal.

Attorneys said that Brendan Khuri and James Khuri routinely uploaded on social media platforms before the deadly crash showing themselves speeding on surface streets in the Los Angeles area.

James Khuri is facing a charge of misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor as a result of his actions. On June 8 there will be a hearing for that particular matter.

During the criminal phase of Brendan Khuri’s case, his defense counsel, Mark Werksman, requested that the youngster be placed on probation by the judge presiding over the case in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Sabina Helton.

Relatives and friends of Munoz claimed that the teenager should serve at least some time in a county juvenile camp and that a term of probation would be too lenient punishment for the offense.

Late in 2021, when Khuri was present in court for one of his planned appearances, CBS reporters were able to conduct an interview with Munoz’s mother.

“I didn’t want to see him. “I had no desire to meet his relatives,” she explained. “At the end of the day, he was the last person who saw my daughter when she was still alive.

The decision was made after the attorneys argued about the juvenile’s mental health and state of mind, using the juvenile’s diagnoses of autism, depression, and attention deficit disorder as supporting evidence.

February was the month that witnessed the disastrous collision. In addition to this, they stated that the defendant would be made a “victim” in the camp due to his condition, and that home arrest would be more appropriate.

Along with the punishment of the juvenile, this aroused fury among the prosecutors, who believed that Brendan should have been sent to the juvenile camp due to his history of repeatedly committing similar offenses, which was reflected in his record. At a speed of almost one hundred miles per hour, Brendan and his girlfriend were competing in a race when their vehicle collided with Monique Munoz.

The victim’s family expressed their disapproval and outrage at the penalty, saying that the rich defendant was given a cushion and that he should have been prosecuted as a complete adult. The victim’s family protested the sentence.

It should be brought to your attention that the Los Angeles Juvenile Probation Camps are designated as facilities for individuals aged 10 to 21. The individuals who have been condemned might get an education, counseling, and other services while they are held in these detention centers. Visits from members of the family are welcome.

During Brendan Khuri’s reign, there were a number of incidents, including this fatal one. In Beverly Hills, his excessive speeding led to the suspension of his driver’s license. Additionally, the police asserted that the teenager had written on social media about drifting and other driving stunts, as well as participating in them.

During his presentation in front of the court and the Munoz family, Brendan said, “I recognize that my pain does not even come close to what you have gone through.” He continued by saying, “At the age of 17, I was a brat who thought he was untouchable and lived a reckless lifestyle.”

The beginning of law school was something that Monique Munoz was getting ready for. Her mother, Carol, who is 54 years old, was in too much of a state of grief to be reached for comment, so she expressed her sorrow and loss on social media.

This was given even more credence by the assertions of Munoz’s friends and relatives, who stated that the son received preferential treatment since his multimillionaire father, James Khuri, is the proprietor of a number of companies and e-commerce organizations.

Aside from the commotion and activity of the court, the attorneys for both families have come to an agreement over a financial settlement, and they are very near to finishing it so that both families may begin the process of healing. There was a large group of protesters gathered at the crash site, and they were shouting and holding up sign cards that said “Justice for Monique.”

The motorist might have been sentenced to a maximum of six years in state prison if he or she had been found guilty of vehicular manslaughter as an adult. The maximum amount of time he might be sentenced to serve in the county’s camp system is nine months; however, this term could be increased depending on how he behaves while he is being held in custody.

The driver apologized to Munoz’s family and revealed that he had thought about ending his own life several times in the years since the accident. He also said that there were times when he wished that he had been the one who had perished in the collision rather than Munoz. In spite of the fact that the driver appeared arrogant and superior in social media posts and film that was shown over the course of the many days that the disposition hearing lasted, the now 18-year-old was timid and shaky when speaking in court on Thursday.

He told the Munoz family, “I realize my pain does not even come close to what you have gone through.” “I realize my suffering does not even come close to what you have gone through.” “When I was 17, I was a pampered brat who thought I was untouchable and lived a reckless lifestyle.”

After the accident, the driver was evaluated and given diagnoses of autism, depression, and attention deficit disorder by a counsel for the defense named Mark Werksman, who requested that Judge Helton give the offender a sentence of probation. Karen Schiltz, a psychologist, said in court the previous week that she believed the adolescent had probably been living with autism his whole life but that he had not received an accurate diagnosis until this year.

Schiltz issued a stern warning, stating that the driver if detained in a juvenile facility in Los Angeles County, would very likely be “victimized.” In light of the recent decision by the California Board of State and Community Corrections that the county’s juvenile facilities are unfit to house juvenile offenders, Werksman stated that he was especially concerned about the potential for the driver to suffer harm while incarcerated in a local juvenile facility. This decision was made one month ago.

Helton finally chose to dismiss the argument while he was deciding the driver’s sentence because the finding of that panel pertained only to the juvenile halls of the county and not the camp facilities where the driver will now dwell. After the hearing, both Werksman and Khuri decided against providing a remark.

Some of Munoz’s family have stated that they do not believe the driver’s apology was sincere and that they believe he should have been tried as an adult. This is despite the fact that the driver was sentenced to the maximum penalty that could be handed down to him in Juvenile Court.

Richard Cartier, Munoz’s uncle, referred to it as “the lollipop sentence and going to Camp Snoopy.” “I call it the lollipop sentence and going to Camp Snoopy.”
