This is an injustice. 8 years is nothing for what she did. If she had used a gun instead of a car it would have been 45. Why only 8. This just tells these dope heads they can get away with any thing.

Miss Harley, you are making it sound like she intentionally ran the poor guy over. I agree that she received a light sentence, but mostly because she didn't stop and lied about driving. I don't know Riester, do you? That prosecutor sure dropped a bunch of charges against her didn't he?

I don't know the woman, but I agree with Harley.She was drunk,high , she ran, she lied and got others to lie for her.In Ind she will only serve about a year and a half of this sentence.Not nearly enough time for taking a life.This was a young man just starting life. Intentional or not he is dead and she will walk the streets again.soon.
