She will probably be using the ever-popular "single mom" defense.

Well, she did lose her son, and no one deserves to bury their children. God bless this woman and all that she has been through.

I wish her courage and strength to move on.

You would've thought that after the accident and trial that she would be more aware of the dangers of alcohol abuse. Obviously not. She's now lost another loved one and most likely, whatever she could've salvaged of her own life.

Why on earth didn't her child's father try to gain custody of the child, or at the very least try to get her some help for her alcohol problem? Sad, sad situation.

Why doesn't "risk of injury" become something more substantial if ultimately, there's a death involved?

At the very least, resurrect the charges from 1999. I realize that's not possible, but this P.O.S. should not be on the streets.

What a shame. I'm guessing her alcoholism was too powerful to control; and now she has to live the rest of her life, knowing that the child she gave life to, she also took away.

OMFG..... LOCK HER UP AND THROW AWAY THE KEY. OBVIOUSLY SHE NEVER LEARNED FROM HER FIRST ERROR WHAT THE DANGERS OF ALCOHOL ARE... SHE EVIDENTLY DIDN'T SUFFER ENOUGH HERSELF EITHER WITH ALL THE INJURIES SHE SUFFERED IN THAT CRASH... WHAT AN I-D-I-O-T !!

What a loser this lady is. Oral sex in a car, giving alcohol to her own son....... Where was DCF in this woman's life? Where was the father? Now, we'll hear how SHE became the victim and what a tragic life she has led.... All in the wake of two deaths. All connected, in some manner or another, with a woman that clearly has no business being a mother......... Property values in Storrs just SKYROCKETED if she is off the streets...

This woman is a train wreck. I now see that she was the one who poured the liquor down poor Neil's throat, made him swallow and then blew him. What an evil person. May God have mercy on her soul. And she's Polish too. I always said those people drink too much. So, instead of losing his mother to prison for several decades, this poor boy dies just like Rowland's poor stepson. What a world!
Shes not polish. She took her ex-husbands last name.

She needs to move on to Niantic prison for a decade or so.She should have been incarcerated for first involvement. This woman is a loose cannon.

Yes that flashing scarlet letter (B in this case) on the woman's lawn really was scaring away an unreasonable number of potential buyers.

OK, what happened to innocent until proven guilty? she is ALLEGED to have provided the alcohol, where did it say she herself has any problem with alcohol? She maynot have a problem, it is entirely possible that this kid is just as out of control as the Father alledges himself to be and stole the liquor from the mother without her knowledge or consent! Get the facts, until then show a little compassion, go shovel some snow or soemthing to get your aggression out....Gee Whiz!
