I used to work with Tony's father, Dan, and I have never known a more patient, kind or loving parent to their children. This is a genuinely good family and it is so sad that this happened. No way, no how did Tony set out to deliberately harm anyone. And anyone who has ever been to State College knows about the partying that happens in this town. Every single weekend, DUI's abound. For each person caught, how many get away with it? And for each person who does it, how many Tony's are there who not only get busted, but take others down with them?
He deserves leniency because this was an accident. He should be sentenced for the DUI like a person who hit a tree or building. The fact that he hit people is very sad, but extending prison time because of that will not do anyone any good. His life is essentially over already. Have mercy!!
