The punishment should fit the crime. She did not drive with the intention of killing someone. Now when someone uses a gun or knife etc there is intent to do harm and a sentence like that would be justified. In this case I believe it is time to draw up new sentencing guidelines. In this case 10-15 years. Regardless it won't bring anybody back. She should get new trial.
