Why on earth did it take 3+ months to arrest her? They mentioned a "person of interest" very early on after the incident.

Just a little frustrating that it took 3 months. If you hit something, why dont you stop??? Why does it take you 24 hours to realize that you did something wrong! What is wrong with you!

Because she lied and claimed she did not know she hit her. I don't remember what she thought she hit. I think its okay though because her children did nothing wrong and she needed to make arrangemnets for them. She will serve her time. I don't think it will be much time, but she will somewhat pay for her crime.

You obviously don't know anything about the court system. 3 months to an arrest is actually a relatively short amount of time for a case of this nature.

You can't just jump in and make arrests until you know you have a good case. If the DA's were as obtuse as you, she wouldn't be convicted at all.

Not sure why you had to talk down to me in your response. Hope it made you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Simmer down, it's Friday.

Often times I've seen suspects arrested within days. I was curious if this woman's zip code had anything to do with it.

I am glad they finally made the arrest. I feel bad for the woman because she probably has a family, but I feel much worse for the Parker family, friends and this community who have lost a wonderful daughter and friend to many and it is all because of this woman's carelessness. This should be a lesson to all people - PAY ATTENTION when driving!! I don't know what this woman was doing; driving under the influence, talking on her cell phone, looking down at the radio, all of the above?- whatever it was she was careless and she took a young life. And, didn't even stop to find out what she hit - just wrong.

This isn't the court system, that's what's coming next. What has outraged the community in this case is Placer County typically files charges in this type of case with these circumstances in less than a week. The woman and the car were located the NEXT day, the car clearly had damage consistent with hitting a person. The woman admitted to being in the area, she admitted to having hit "something" (she thought it was a dog). Hopefully we will discover in court that there was a legitmate reason for the lengthy delay in charges being filed.

I don't know....I have to suspect when someone calls in the next day (as opposed to stopping and seeing what happenend) that they were probably under the influence of something.

she probably was drunk and got scared and waited until she was sober the next day.

Prior to that accident, peoples cars had been hit by kids throwing rocks, etc... Also, It makes a pretty big jolt when running over a raccoon, do you stop whenever you hit a critter. It is also very dark on that road with a tiny shoulder so there is no room for error on the part of drivers and bikers/walkers along that road. Hopefully a lesson for all, although I do agree, a huge tragedy for the girls' family. Something no family should have to go through

Uhhhh, in case you forgot about the story, this old woman hit this girl then continued to drive home. the next day, she called chp and says "i think i ran someover over last night"...they found the body, they got the woman calling chp, why not arrest her right then?

The police had to make sure that this was the car that struck the girl. They wanted the charges to stick, so they had to make sure all the forensic eveidence supported their case. They could not charge her the next day with out anything to support their case. They were doing their job.

I think she did admit to being in the Auburn area that evening & having a drink. Apparently she used to live in Colfax. I don't think the zipcode has anything to do with it. I do agree that she should have arrested immediately for a hit & run. Hopefully she won't be able to plea down & get a very limited sentence. I am sick of all these plea bargains lately.

Because she was probably buzzed or drunk at the time. Waiting until the next day is common practice for people who do this kind of thing under the influence of something. Just speculating of course...

That's very Christian of you.
I'm sure thats not the kind of support that Courtneys family need right now. They just lost their precious daughter, have a heart.

i can't believe she might get only 4 years. the law needs to change to at least 20 years. she is a young woman just starting her life. she was probably on medication when the lady hit her.

Not only uncalled for, not always the case. A few months back a family member was arrested, booked and jailed over a long holiday weekend because he wears a hat like one in a fuzzy surveillance photo. Arrested the day after the burglary. Had 3 airtight alibis (he was clocked in and working at the time of the crime 10 miles away), no priors. The process still dragged out for two months until the judge told the deputy DA to either put up or shut up, and the charges were dropped.

So don't be so quick to spout about others being obtuse.
