• The appeal process began when questions arose about whether the massive Toyota recall might apply. Lee's '96 Camry was not part of any recall, but others with identical or similar vehicles have experienced sudden unintended acceleration.
• Lee now has four children, ages, 8, 5, 3 and 2. The youngest two don't know their father and have shied away from him the few times they visited him at the Lino Lakes prison.
