Bockmann v. Sellers, et al. - A senseless tragedy easily preventable at any number of the stages of the events led to Beau Bockmann's death. Beau Bockmann was a mature 18 year old and pursuing a dream to become a nurse anesthetist when he was caught in the wrong place at the wrong time one night in August, 2007. The defendant, Mr. Sellers, then 17 years of age, made a decision to purchase beer for himself and three buddies through the use of an expired driver's license belonging to someone else. He knew where he could use the fraudulent identification to purchase beer because he had successfully done so many times before. His expectations were met when the store employee briefly glanced at the obviously questionable identification and without any comment or question while staring at the hairless face of a boy who looked all of fifteen or sixteen years of age, rang up the sale and set in motion behaviors that would ultimately cost Beau Bockmann his life. While driving drunk later that evening, Mr. Sellers ran a red light and smashed into Beau's car, killing him instantly. Suit was brought against Mr. Sellers, and First Chevron, the store where he purchased the beer. Totally Settlement with the assistance of JDR, Hon. Charles Burdell (Ret.) $950,000.00.
