This worthless subhuman piece of refuse should get at least 25 years in prison, without parole..Two teenagers were murdered by this savage....60 days in jail and community service! Te only leniency is not giving the guilty party the death sentence!

Thank goodness for liberalism....the disease which cultivates in court rooms that deem 60 DAYS in jail is a punishment that "fits the crime."
60 years would be a little more acceptable punishment for destroying two families and cutting probably 60 years from someone..
Good God. Just elect Obama. I'm sure that goon will "law on" criminals like this with an iron fist..
GUFFAW!

My guess is she'll be out tonight or in a week or so, doing the same thing and laughing with her friends and her dad that she got away with it.
These types never learn and they couldn't care less who they maim or kill, as long as they get away with it and can do it again. I bet Daddy even bought her a nice, new, faster, shinier car because those naughty police officers were mean to her.
My prayers to the families of the two people she murdered.
At least they know that when this girl takes her last breath, even if she lives to be 90, the two she killed will be waiting for her, the first faces she'll see - and she'll face a greater judge - and likely a much, much harsher sentence - than she would ever face here.

The audacity of her father to claim it was just an accident and could have happened to anyone is outrageous. Traveling up to 75 mph in a 25 mph zone is NOT an accident. It is complete and reckless disregard for other drivers and people. And the fact that she could have been racing her brother, along with her father's comments, shows they all possess a complete lack of personal responsibility and regard for anyone but themselves.
I couldn't have said it beter.

If she lived in a poor community and could not afford a good lawyer, she would be charged as an adult. Money is always right.

60 days !!! That's too much. People, how can you be so cruel to someone, who just commited harmless childish mistake?! I think tapping on hand would be more than enough for something like that.

Yeah the judge was so not moved by her last minute tears he gave her an extremely lenient 2 months for two deaths caused by drag racing. I'm not saying give her life but can she at least get a little more community service than 160 days?

Not to mention she didn't even give a dayum until sentencing. It wasn't until it was about her that it became real, screw the dead kids.

I know kids who got years for a joint. This is a true slap in the face of justice. When a person dies it is not just some accident that can happen to anyone. Accidents are dropping a glass, tripping on a carpet. Maybe now some people will realize the difference that money makes in the courtroom.

Whoa! Sixty whole days? She will never make it. It will do her in.
30 days would be more appropriate. Oh, wait. Home confinement maybe. She only killed two kids, after all. Now if it had been THREE, that would be a different story. 90 days in that case.

2 months for 2 lives...and with the typical 2 days credit for 1 served, she'll be out in a month... pretty soon it will be cheaper by the dozen. Make her do some morgue community service, or highway trash pick up (that'll show her what 75mph REALLY looks like). May the families of the departed find peace, cause justice was truly deaf, dumb AND blind in this case.

The Judge notes she has no remorse and then slaps her on the wrist with a penalty so short as to be an insult to the dead students' memories. Her father thinks speeding is just an "accident." An appalling vista.

I just don't get this:

If the judge "was not moved by the woman's tears" and had "never seen her show one ounce of remorse," why did she only sentence her to 60 days and not the 3 years in prison she potentially faced?

That just doesn't make any sense.
