She is not responsible for the death because the adult pushing the stroller was
crossing outside the crosswalk. (And not doing so in full daylight) The driver
was responsible for leaving the scene, not having a license, and not wearing
glasses and the windows being tinted too much was the fault of the owner of the
car. She was penalized for those things. She didn't get anything for the
child's life. The adult pushing the stroller made a bad decision. Not jail
worthy. Usually fatal accidents happen because a number of things are done
I feel for both women in this case. The mother who lost her son will have a
special place in her heart that aches, but the pain can be softened through
faith in Christ.The woman driving the car did not start out that
morning with intent to be violent or hurt a child. It was an accident that may
have been prevented. But who knows, it was dark, rainy, and a poorly lit area.
She forgot her glasses and should have turned around to get them. Serious
mistakes were made. I am sure she agonizes over her poor decisions and the
accidental death she caused.I trust the judge in this case, who saw
the women and knows the suffering and pain they both feel. What is the purpose
of punishment? Is it to crush individuals? Is it to help them not make
mistakes again? Somewhere in justice there is also the hope of mercy,
forgiveness, and new life.Again, I trust the judge. 10 years in
jail will not bring the child back.
We need real judges.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is called extreme leniency. Justice it isn't. I
guess breaking a number of laws that result in the death of an infant don't
There has to be more to this story. DN, can you report some more? What were
the circumstances? Was the mother perhaps deemed to be more at fault for
jaywalking than the driver? The sentence does seem really, really light... If
this were my child, I would be up in arms.
This absolutely sickens me. I feel for the mother of the little boy. Her
son's life was only worth 88 days. Shame on the judge~
Break 4 laws; flee the scene of an accident which took the life of a child; hide
from authorities; and then get a plea that changes the death of a child to
"property damage".And they say there's no justice. What
