All I know is that the girl worked at the family video in Paris. She is 28 or 29. Old enough to know better.

She is 26 year old single mother of 4 children and had been out drinking the night before. She told her family and friends that she "hit a deer". Her boyfriend was with her as the passenger at the time. How can you hit a person and drive off and live with yourself! She is now out on $5000 bond. In my opinion she should still be in the Edgar County Jail with a MUCH larger bond amount! She goes back to court April 9th

She also had a dui,last year talk about not learning. And she wants to call her self a good mother. And she only has two children she actually raises. And you should check her stuff in other counties. back in 2004 she had another drinking charge. She should be locked up right now and for a very long time what is wrong with you to hit someone leave them for dead and cover it up by lieing to everyone. She should not only be in jail but her family does not deserve her children either dont tell me they dident know.

I know I would hide behind Crimestoppers if I had information about the crime. I wouldn't trust my life with that girl and her boyfriend knowing I was the one who turned them in. They obviously have no compassion. How else can you explain them running over a man and leaving him on the road like that? If you notice, the man was hit at 1 A.M. but didn't die until 10:00 A.M. Who knows...if the hit had been turned in right away, he might be alive today.

If you know her, you'd know she's a little lacking in the common sence area. Don't be so quick to judge. You might start saying a few prayers. She does have children that are young, and will be scared by statements made by you.

after reading the paris news paper today, i bet anything she will get probation. Im sure it has alot too do with the detective and her step dad being good friends. how ealse does someone does somthing like this and then the detectives goes picks her up from where she works,takes her to the P.D. gets her confession statement ,then gives her 3 day to come up with bond money. If it was anyone ealse, they would of arrested them on the spot. Plus be charged with a more serious charge. there would not be any probation offered. Its not her fault for hitting him,he was in the middle of the road at night.But she left him too DIE!! Just goes tob show you how corrupt edgar county is!!!!!

That is really stupid and they should have atleast got out and checked on thr guy instead of leaving him there to die that was really immature and they probably knew he wazs gonna die but they atleast should have stop and checked on him instead of running. cause they would have got into less trouble if they wouldnt have ran but they ran sdo that is considered hit and run so thats not a very good to have on your record that was really lame

Does anyone know why she didn't turn in the accident? Was it true she was drinking and driving once again and didn't want the manslaughter charges?

You now I dont care who you are but you had to of seen that man in the road.unless you are to stupid to tell the dierence between a man and deer. its amazing that you mom and step dad knew and hid the evidence for you. You are 26 and call your self a mother of 4. Right you dont even have half of your kids. its sad when you sign you rights of you oldest son over for a CAR!!! Thats not a mother!! And now you are trying to give your daughters up to you parents for getting yuo out of jail. now what about you youngest son that you dont care abot? You just got a DUI in Februry 21, 2008 and yu didnt learn that time. Now you went out and partied and this time killed an inocent man. You deserve the max of 15 yrs. You couldnt even go to the police the next day after you heard about it and let them know that you hit hit cause you were scared. And now you are thinking that you are going to get probaton because your step dad is "IN' with the detective and states attorney. And your step dad is a correction officer! HUH what irony that is he should know better! As Far as i am concerned you should get the MAX PLUS more. you know people goto prision for writing bad checks, hitting people with their fist, driving on suspended, which you have done not to long ago and are still since April 2007, Hopefully your case will get moved out of Edgar county and you get what you deserve and your kids dads get full custody of them. They are a lot better with out you.I dont know how you can live with your self or even sleep at night knowing that you killed a MAN. His family deserved JUSTICE and it wont be meet untill you are punished to the full extent.It doesnt matter if he was know as the town drunk and may not have any family he WAS STILL A HUMAN JUST LIKE YOU!!!!!!!

yuo guys would have protected her like any family would have how would you feel if some one hit your family member and left. you would want the max for them that is just heartless and now 4 months later she admits it. whatever. she needs to get in to trouble this time. she got off easy her first 2 DUI's and she didnt learn what she had to kill someone to learn no shes capiable of doing it again!!!!

I just wanted to let everyone know that what you say affects everyone involved, including young children and innocent family members. I know that some of the family members of the ones arrested have been treated badly and are worried about their own children being hurt in ther process. The family didn't know what happened, only the ones involved knew what happened. I recently spoke with some family members, they are being stared at, confronted by other people @ work, and it's not right. Yes I agree what happened was wrong, but don't take it out on the whole family. I know the family is a good family and they love their kids and nieces and nephews! Think before you act, it affects everyone! I'm also very sorry for the family of Mr. Corbin, no one should suffer like that. Just remember both sides have families who are hurt and didn't know!
