Well that what he should have been charged with! Those other guys that killed the two women, were charged with murder so that's right.

Mallory Wooten went to drug rehab....she didn't spend time in jail for killing her boyfriend at the time....so why shouldn't the law be the same for everyone. The lady that works at the health dept that hit a woman going to dialysis didn't do any jail time and she was talking or texting on her phone. Laws should be equal punishment. Sad a drug dealer does more time than a sex offender or murderer.

Its bitter sweet!! Something so tragic a life was taken because of a choice of a teenager. Something needs to be learned from this. The choices you make in your life affects others maybe not directly but some kind of way its gonna affect the next person. So please think about your choices and decisions. Justice will be served for Miss Clemons but from here on out PARENTS OF YOUNG TEENS PLEASE MAKE SURE U ARE MORE AWARE OF YOUR TEENS AND WHATS GOIN ON IN THEIR LIVES. SO THAT THERE WONT BE ANOTHER BRANDON MARKS OR ANOTHER BRITTANY CLEMONS OUR TEENS AND YOUNG PEOPLE ARE PRECIOUS AND WE SHOULDNT HAVE TO KEEP BURYING THEM.

Very very good!!! statement and your right there is a lesson to be learned from this situation. I agree with you 100% that parents should be more aware of their teens. Mine can't stand me because I'm always checking on them or calling them hell sometimes I even leave my job and make sure they are alright and you can bet your sweet ass if I ever catch them smoking or drinking I'm goin to jail.

I completely agree that he should face these charges, BUT there are two other folks who bear some responsibility in this: the adult who gave the 17-year-old the booze and the mother of the girlfriend who made him leave her house, knowing he was drunk. Just sayin.

I agree with you 110%!!!!! Why didn't this mother call his parents? If this wast teen, I would expect someone to call me and let me know that my kid was drunk and was not able to drive. I will do everything in my power to keep my kids and their friends SAFE!!!

If this young man had not had a "history" already of alcohol and trying to out run the police things would have most likely have been different.

Doesn't change the fact that the day after it happened, his family was on this very forum literally bragging about how his lawyer had already said that he wouldn't get charged with anything above manslaughter and would, at most, be locked up until he turns 18 in a few months and then he'd be free. Can't say I blame Lemon's family for being upset about that. I'm glad it didn't turn out that way. Too many people in this town have bought their way out of the crimes they have committed.

Wow! Was that it? After running away like a low-life coward instead of helping that poor kid?

He could be out in a couple of years.I hope some of the inmates in there have kids of their own.

Why is Mallory always brought up? Her situation is nothing like this one. She was with her bf, both were underage and drinking, both were at fault and took that risk.
