Second day of Hite trial concludes

May 31, 2012

The trial of Dale Hite, of Plymouth, began yesterday in Starke County Circuit Court, with Judge Kim Hall presiding.
Hite is on trial for an incident that happened Oct. 16, 2009, when the car he was allegedly driving crashed into some trees traveling 124 mph.
According to court documents, police were at a Grovertown residence investigating the possibility of someone manufacturing methamphetamine. While looking for evidence, a car approached the home and then sped away.
The driver of the vehicle shut the lights off when law enforcement officials began to follow the car.
Two passengers were thrown from the car: Nicholas White and Amber McMillen, both of Plymouth. The victims died at the scene from injuries sustained in the crash.
Hite had to be airlifted from the crash site.
Hite claims he was not driving at the time the accident occurred. However, reports say evidence collected at the scene indicates he was the driver.
Hite has been charged with eight counts of criminal behavior: Two counts of resisting law enforcement resulting in death, Class B Felonies; two counts reckless homicide, Class C felonies; resisting law enforcement, Class D Felony; possession of methamphetamine, Class D Felony; failure to stop at a stop sign. Class C Infraction; failure to use headlights from sunset to sunrise, Class C Infraction.
Hite's trial will continue at 9 a.m. tomorrow in the Starke County Circuit Court.

How can people b so cold hearted and say what they r saying about this guy? If u weren't there when that accident happened then u do not know the true story. Yes maybe he has been in trouble with the law before but I believe they all have been. Just because he made it and the other two didn't does not give anyone the right to talk badly about him. Don't u think he deals with the pain of losing two of his friends everyday? What if he didn't make it and one of the others did? Would u say the same things about them as u r him? Would they be charged with all the same charges as he is? Probably not. Just because his past isn't perfect doesn't give anyone the right to judge him. He is still human like the rest of us and we all make mistakes. I hope the best for him and pray that the court can find it in their hearts to give him a fair trial. Hes not a murderer and he did not go out and kill those people.

this guy and his sister are worthless excuses for human beings

Not only did this guy kill the two that were in that car that night, he ruined a lot of young peoples lives. He manufactured this poison for years. Making an unknown amount of money, getting his friends and family addicted to it. Destroying many families hopes, dreams, and lives. He and his sister not only did this to others families they also did it to their own. While giving his drug to a friend, who then had taken to much and was in need of medical help, Takes him to the hospital and dumps him in the yard to be found by someone later. Well that guy is dead. Then there is the girlfriend. She was with him, he gets pulled over. he has her put his drug in her body. When told that she thought there was a problem, that she didn't think she was going to be alright. he tells her to do nothing with the drug or she would pay for it with a beating. Well she didn't have to worry about that did she? No she is dead. So now tell me again how this guy shouldn't be judged. If you feel he should be let go or that I should feel sorry for him. Then I feel sorry for you. If you feel that he should be out of jail to go on with this life of destruction, then maybe you should look at your son, daughter, niece, nephew, brother, sister and think long and hard how you would feel if it were one of them that Dale Hite and Alicia Hite had taken from you. I for one am so happy that this guy will be off the streets so that none of my family will be taken from me at the hands of these two, that have taken so much, from so many. Throw the book atthe both of them

Dale Hite is nothing but a liar! His disgusting actions took the lives of two people. Granted, they all had a problem with meth but they have to die for it! Dale Hite is lucky to be alive...only because he was the driver and didn't get thrown from the vehicle! I hope to God he gets what he deserves and the judge sees right through his pathetic lies!! There are consequences for every action we take. He should have just pulled over and faced up to wrong doings. Nick and Amber didn't have to die!!
