This is very good news and I hope he goes down for the maximum sentence. The pain and grief he has caused Jackies friends and family will never go away because Jackie can never come back to us but this may help towards the healing process. I hope one day he learns from his mistake and says sorry to Jackie's Husband because that is the least he can do considering what he has taken away from this wonderful man.

A kid runs from the Police and ends up dieing. He broke the law and died. BUT this innocent woman who didn't break a law and was a victim of a scumbag that was driving stupidly, dies. I'm just curious how some dumbass who is breaking the law and dies gets over 450 posts but this woman who suffered for 2 years gets under 5. This goes to show the ignorance of the majority of people who comment on these forums. God rest this womans soul, I hope her family can heal soon from the tragedy that this idiot caused.

I'm very sadden people want to see him sent to prison, this was an accident. Horrible and tragic, yes, but still an accident. My heart is heavy for the McCosh family for the loss of their beloved Jackie; however, I do not feel this kid needs to be convicted to years in prison. To those calling him an "idiot" and wishing him to "go down for the maximum sentence", obviously you do not know him to know the effect this tragic event has had on his life. He had 2 friends that were also injured in this accident, injuries that to this day they still struggle with daily, but they have found forgiveness and wish nothing but the best for him. Did this accident change his life? Yes. Absolutely. He has contiued his education and has a good job and is working at being a positive member to society. Given everything he has dealt with since this accident, I would say that is a huge accomplishment and should very much be considered!

It is called accountability. You are the biggest problem this country has. No one wants to be responsible for their actions. Maybe if we put a few more "good people" in prison, they will think about thiose that they could possibly maim or kill by being stupid.

Use this person as an example. Lock him up and throw away the key. The family of the woman that was killed will never get to see her again, whyn should his friends and family get to see him?

oh please, i can assure you that i am far from being the biggest problem this country has!

i do however believe there is something seriously wrong with the judicial system..it wants to slam someone like this kid for an auto accident...yet you have people that admit to lets say, killing their brother, or a horse, with a gun, and people are trying to defend their actions and justify it. i have no problem with people being held accountable for their actions...however, i do have a problem with convictions being so emotionally driven that the courts lose site of the real issue at hand! if the kid was under the influence, i'd be right on your soap box saying lock his butt up, but tox reports came back clean, the road was unmarked w/no speed limit sign and in PA that means the speed limit was 55mpg. is that fast for that road? absolutely! but this is PA's policy...so..if speed was a primary factor, does that not place fault on that State of PA as well? just a thought...

I used to know this young man's family and I feel terrible for them. His parents weren't bad people. However, they seemed ignorant about how to handle his behavior problems which grew worse as he became older. They sometimes made excuses for his lack of manners and breaking rules. He had some other unlawful charges against him. Why were his parents still paying his insurance and giving him car privileges? If he has truly made a change in his life since then,"locking him away & throwing away the key" will probably only make him a worse person. Some jail time and many years of probation and public service would be the best for him.

Regardless of the posted (or not posted) speed limit. It is the drivers responsibility to maintain control of their vehicle at all times. He did not, he lost control and it cost a woman months of suffering and eventually her life. He took her life, he deserves to forfeit his.

Boo Hoo his friends were hurt because he could not control himself or the car. At least they are alive to be seen, What about the poor woman he killed? This was no accident, an accident is an unforeseen event that cannot be avoided. Had this kid driven safely and sanely, this woman may still be alive. He did not and now to see her, her family must look at pictures and memories. This kid deserves to give his life because he caused this womans death through stupidity and negligence. What if it were your mother he killed, would you be so forgiving?

it takes a bigger person to forgive someone than it does to harbor hatred and plot revenge.

and yes i believe this was an accident, he didnt see her sitting there and say,'hold on boys! see that car up there? we're going to hit it and really injure ourselves and that driver!' just as ridiculous as that sounds is how ridiculous all you people sound!

No but he sure as hell was driving beyond his ability to control his vehicle. This was no accident, it could have been avoided had he used even a small amount of common sense. He did not and now a person is dead because of his "bravado". Hammurabi was right 3000 years ago, an eye for an eye. This waste of flesh deserves to forfeit his life. His family should know what it is to lose a loved one.

I am glad you did not stoop to calling me a christian. I have no faith in some mythological "sky fairy" I am not about to stick my head in the snad and hope some vapor is gonna save my ass. Yes I do believe his family should suffer the same as this womans family suffered. As I said, an eye for an eye.
This kid was just plain stupid and deserves to forfeit his life. If we did not have so many bleeding heart pansies such as yourself in this country, maybe we would have less "accidents". If people realizesd there was a substantial penalty for stupidity, maybe they would exercise a little more self control.

You have no clue where I have or have not posted. It is obvious you are not on my friends list so you have no idea who or where I am. You are just another ignorant troll trying to make himself look bigger than the puny little coward you are. Go back to momma's trailer and play with yourself.
