Courtroom drama as Darezzo is sentenced

Full story: Lowell Sun

Moments after a judge slammed Stephen Darezzo with a state prison sentence for driving drunk and killing a pedestrian in a 2006 motor vehicle homicide case, drama erupted in Lowell Superior Court on Friday as the 51-year-old Dracut man slumped to the floor and one of Darezzo's relatives struggled to breathe as she suffered an asthma attack.

does he think there was no drama in the comtois family. i don't think he got enough time. and anyone can put on a show like that. for someone to say he didn't do it and then say sorry, what's up with that. the nightmare will never end for the family, but his will be over in 2 years when he walks out of prison to have another beer. and that is the sad part.

How sad for the family of the women killed ..the drunk driver only gets 2-5 years while they get a life sentence of not having thier mother, wife, sister....the driver is pathatic and should suffer for the rest of his misearble life.
The laws must be changed if you drink you drive you kill then life for the driver should be life in prison or better yet a southern prison with hard labor not a county jail with 4 squares and room and board....God Bless The Victims family.

His famiy was overcome because he won't be with them for a few years, which with good behavior proabably won't even be that long.

The Comtois family got a life sentence. The famiy's behavior was selfish and a slap in the face of the Comtois family. Save the dramatics for people who care!!!

You're blaming the victim for Mr. D'Arezzo's bad conduct? You are the idiot! You're probably a drunk driver too, is my guess, or why else would you be defending the criminal.
