I can't see how this trial or any jail time that comes from it will do any good for anyone at all. Hasn't everyone been through enough already?

The real main point should be that the defendant did not do anything intentional, nor was he under the influence of anything. I know that negligience on his part is sufficient for the misdo vehicular manslaughter, but it's not as if he was reported to have been driving erradically or with gross disregard for the safety of others. It seems as if he was at fault, it was accidental. On the other hand the grandaughter may have bben driving too fast, with little sleep and possibly slightly buzzed from too much alcohol the night before. I think the entire thing is tragic, but it is an accident! Leave the poor elderly gentleman alone, and dont you think the daughter has suffered enough with the loss of her gradmother!
