I agree with you. I have no remorse for her. The local news channels are trying to put her out to be some innocent little girl who made a mistake. I don't think so! The young man she took the life of was a wonderful person, he had a lot of things going for him. He was doing all he could to make a difference in our community. I'm sorry, but her sentence of 2.5 years is ridiculous! She knew when she took that first drink of the day what could happen, yet she continued. I think she should have been put away for life myself and her cell should have been wallpapered with that young man's picture, so she would have to look at it 24/7. Of course, she has no remorse in what she did, her remorse is that she is no longer going to be the "soccer star" that she was, and that she got caught. As for the person or people who supplied the alcohol to her, they should also face life inprisonment as an accomplist in the murder she commited.
make sure you know people before you go around make judgments...i know paige personally and she is remorseful for what has happened, i'm sure all the things that she has lost have crossed her mind but the most hurtful is that she has ended a life, something like that will never leave. dont be harsh about something or someone you know nothing about

she did make a mistake, one that a whole bunch of people make, some who are using this site right now i am sure, she is still very young and what she did is wrong, but think about how many times some of us have done this. i know that when i was her age, i didnt always think of the consequences of my actions. i am not excusing her for what she did, i am just saying try not to judge to harshly , i am sure she didnt intend on killing anyone when she made her very bad choice. im not sure how much jail time i would think she should serve, i hope she and her peers have learned a huge lesson in this, dont let this boys death mean nothing, take the bad and make some good, she and her family will have to live the rest of their lives knowing she took a life because of a horrible choice. i am not sure calling it a mistake is right, mistakes are usually accidental, and she chose to drink, so her bad choice has and will cause her pain throughout her life, i hope she thinks of this everytime she takes a drink the rest of her life. as for the victims family, my prayers are with you and my he rest in peace.

I just graduated in class of 2006!! When I heard this I was shocked becasue how could someone do that but jsut like I have read who bought the alcohol for her they both should be going to jail!! I think she did get what she should have becasue she didnt really get a strick punishment i think that she should have to write a letter to the parents and speak to people about what she has done and what it can to to other teens!! I hope that she does do ok and that she will get forgivness but it will take a lot for her to get that she took a boys life just for that one night of fun!!!GOD BLESS HER AND THE FAMILYS

Buck's little ditty made me laugh after sitting here reading yet one more tragic story about a young person drinking and driving and causing the loss of another young persons life. I don't know these children but children they are and they behaved like drunk children. I agree that the sentence seems rather light but I am not the judge or the jury. I am sure that loosing her friend to a careless act will forever weigh on the young lady and while that alone seems a harsh enough punishment there will never be a true justice. The drinking age should be 21 without exemption. To the person who gave or sold those kids that booze you know who you are and you if you have a concience you will make amends to that young lady and to the rest of the people hurt by your lack of responsibility. To those who lost their son my sorrowful heart holds a kind thought for you and hope that you will find strength.... Don't dwell on the last part of his life think of all the happiness that came before. To the young lady I'm so sorry that you made that choice and I know that you are in Hell in your heart because of it, try to know that you can never take it back and it will always be part of your past. Do good things to help others from here on out and you will find you help yourself..... Peace to All

the "in" thing for parents to do now is to host drinking parties where teens will spend the night at the host's house instead of driving home. parents who host these parties rationlize their actions because they think it's safer than having their own kids drink unsupervised at some other party.
well guess what, your party just became some other parents' problem.
idiots... let them all go to prison and throw away the key. and makre sure it's a real prison and not one of those minimum security "life here is softer than a 4-star country club" facilities for non-violent offenders. driving a half-ton vehicle while drunk sure sounds violent to me.
Why would she go to a maximum security prison? She intend to kill anyone, it's not like she set out that day to kill someone. Her parents weren't hosting a drinking party and she was actually at a school soccer game. So who is really the idiot?

This young woman kills somebody while intoxicated, & and she only has a prison term of 2 1/2 yrs. Don't anybody see anything wrong with this picture. I call this murder. What do others call it. This young man had is whole life ahead, and snuffed out just like a light bulb being turned off. I feel sorry for his family. I also feel sorry for this young woman, for she will be marked for life. What a waste, and had she called for someone sober to drive this would have never had happen and she could have had a happier life. But instead she chose the wrong path. Wake up people this is your chance to change, and not to take someone else's life and your's too!
Murder is premeditated.
