A Baltimore man charged with vehicular manslaughter and fleeing the scene of an accident rejects a plea offer made in reception court on Sept. 1 before Judge Melissa M. Phinn in Baltimore City Circuit Court.

John Hassett, William’s defense attorney, rejected the plea offer on behalf of his client.
