The captain and driver boarded the vessel at 6:27 p.m. The adventure begins on land at a terminal in Branson. Typically, the vessel tours the popular country music and home entertainment community first prior to going to the lake for about a 20-minute boat trip. The motorist drives the automobile on land, and the captain takes control of on the water.

The vessel got to the lake a couple of minutes before 7 p.m. and the captain briefed guests on the place of fire escape and life vest, then showed usage of life vest and pointed out the place of life rings.

The captain made another call on a portable radio at 7:05 but the content was once again unintelligible.

Over the next few minutes, water splashed inside the guest compartment.

At 7:07 p.m. an electronic tone associated with the bilge alarm activated once again.

At 7:08 p.m. the inward-facing video recording ended as the vessel was still on the surface of the water.

A private inspector who analyzed 24 duck boats for Ripley Home entertainment in August, including the one that sank, stated that when the bilge alarm went off, it would be a sign that, “There’s a considerable amount of water in the hull.”

“It simply wasn’t getting left,” stated Steve Paul, owner of Test Drive Technologies in the St. Louis location.

“You got lots of time for this,” Reynolds discussed to Smith prior to bying far the sentence. “When I called the case previously you stated you ain’t got time for this, so I didn’t know if you had time for this now?”

Smith laughed and decreased his head, specifying he didn’t understand the judge heard him.

Reynolds paused and asked Smith, “You simply do not get it do you?”

“He hasn’t stated I’m sorry yet,” the judge went on. “He hasn’t acknowledged to this court that he should not have done, shouldn’t have occurred, in fact, his mindset towards this court and life, in general, has actually been sour.”

Smith’s grandfather made an impassioned plea for his grand son’s liberty, asking the judge to reveal grace.

“Give him a chance to tell you he’s sorry,” the grandfather pleaded with Reynolds.

“He’s had every chance,” the judge reacted. “I’ve asked 2 or three times today.”

“Are you sorry?” the grandpa asked Smith then responded he was sorry for his actions and sorry for his “homeboy”, referencing A’Donte Washington.

Chief District Lawyer C.J. Robinson noted Smith’s attitude in court.

“After the jury decision, he was laughing. Today in court he was chuckling,” Robinson stated. “I have yet to understand exactly what was so funny.”

Robinson discussed Smith was a young man with his whole life ahead of him today has to pay the repercussions for some extremely bad decisions.

“Standing there in court, I couldn’t help but have compassion for his grandfather, for his household,” Robinson went on, “due to the fact that of his stupidity, they have actually lost him for 65 years.”

Smith’s co-defendants Jadarrian Hardy, Jhavarske Jackson and Le’Anthony Washington have all pleaded guilty in this case. Hardy is arranged for sentencing in May. Washington is waiting for a new sentencing date, and Jackson was sentenced to 28 years in jail.
