Tom Perkins

Yacht collision causes doctor death

1996

Perkisn is racing off the French coast when his yacht collides with a smaller boat, killing a French doctor on board.

I was arrested and tried in a foreign court in a language you don’t understand, by judges indifferent – or worse – to justice, represented by an inappropriate lawyer with the negative outcome preordained.

Perkins is convicted of involuntary manslaughter and fined $10,000.
