Why is it only 15 to life - it should be life to life.
EPA PD had her license plate number and should have stopped the pursuit. PA PD's policy wouldn't likely allow even starting the wild street chase. They would have simply gone to her house and cited her. She had a job, no great criminal history and wasn't a flight risk.
I think she's guilty of having a lousy defense lawyer. Not a lot to be happy about on this one.
So sad to hear of an innocent life being taken.
Prayers for everyone involved.
Joe, charges included:
Defrauding an innkeeper
She was no angel. Just the fact that she was drunk and driving with wanton disregard for the safety of others says that. Do you want your kids playing on the street where she might do that? Do you want your mother driving on the same street? Do you want your wife walking the dog there?
She is a repeat offender, the die is cast, she is a menace to society. Sorry for her, but until we can give her an autonomous vehicle with no steering wheel, she cannot be let out of jail in my opinion.
No, you can't just revoke her license, she does not appear to be the type that would be deterred by that.
It was an accident i know her and she is very sorry for what she did and understands it was wrong the sentance she got was not right she is not a bad person come on dont tell me as youngsters you never got a d.u.i and did mistakes dont judge her by one failure look at allthe good she has done in her life free lei
15 years too life? Does that really mean about 8 years with good behavior, or 15 years minimum? This story is really awful on just about every level, also considering the character and past behavior. Ugh, what is the matter with our legal system?
Don't miss out on the discussion!
