It is pathetic that she got 18 months to 36 months in prison for killing a person.
She should not be sent to prison at all. She needs to be executed for killing 2 people!

The legal system failed at protecting the public. Why was this woman allowed out into public, much less get behind a wheel? The judge's presiding over her sentencing failed greatly and this is a tragedy.

At what point in your life do you finally see the sign?? So many folks drink and drive on a regular basis, including those in my own family. I really wish folks would use better judgement and realize they don't have to have beer with them everywhere they go. What are you going to do? We can't babysit everyone. We can only penalize people when they get caught and hope one day they realize how they are putting no only themselves at risk but, innocent bystanders.

No more than 13-30 years?!!! Seriously?!!
This is the second person she has killed while intoxicated and the fifth time she's been caught, hammered behind the wheel and this is all she gets?! What in the "f" are these judges thinking?!!!!!!!!

Seriously, why did they have a plea deal with this? Seems like a slam dunk. This crazy bitch should never be allowed to drive again. I can't believe she got off so easy the first time she killed someone...which was also her second DUI offense. If I was a betting man, I would say she'll get another DUI within 3 years if they let her out.

My husband got 2 DUI's as a young adult in 1999, and then drove under suspension to get to work and got caught. He lost his license for a total of 10 years and did jail time. How did this woman kill someone and be a repeat offender and still be behind the wheel of a vehicle? I'm not saying my husband's punishment was too severe, but it seems hers certainly wasn't severe enough!

The same way your husband did by being a scofflaw and driving w/o a license. Although I feel your husband had some mitigating circumstances there and was at lease going to work, still wrong, but not as wrong as driving drunk w/o a license. If he lost it for 10 yrs and and went to jail he got caught more than once too.
I'd be willing to bet all of this woman's arrests are alcohol related and those summary traffic offenses actually should have been DUI's that the cops missed

I can't imagine 13-30 years of hard time in a state pen would be a cakewalk for Ms. Faltrow.

Remember, this was a plea deal. The prosecutor gets to put her in jail without having to go through the time, and expense of a trial where a jury could have brought back a not guilty verdict.

The system worked. Case closed.

I am guessing that this woman worked as a snitch from time to time for the drug task force. If people only knew how often the law is not enforced with these chronic offenders just so some poor soul can do time for peddling a small amount of drugs.

Unless all you morons know the "full" story you have no right to make any comment on this story or any other for that matter. The court doesn't want brought out that Mr. Wolf beat the crap out of her continually and in fact the day of the accident they were not sure at the hospital which bruises were brought on by domestic abuse and which came from the accident. Mr. Wolf was no angel as his son would want people to believe. Mr. Wolf was also DRUNK that day. They sure didn't list that in the paper. So, I know there will be lots of comments on my post, but as the saying goes, those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones and as the Bible says, Let ye without sin cast the first stone. ALCOHOLISM IS DISEASE!!! It can also be proven by court records that Ms. Fetrow did not recieve the alcohol/drug rehab when she was in jail before. So again, unless you know the full story just keep your comments to yourself. The paper only reports what is needed to sell papers. As many have said before, YDR is very biased and they do not research before they print a story.

Ok, relax, breathe.....
So you got me convinced, Wolf was a d!ck, thank God she took him out. Fair? But I think what has the people up in arms is maybe the dead fisherman, that was long ago, coulda got at least a little help since then. Maybe it's all the charges since then? What about the innocent people she could have hurt while driving drunk? All that might be why the people are upset. And you sound like a friend, where were you when she was spiraling down? Kinda think some of the blame becomes your at that point. And since when does it become the responsibility of "jail" to make her quit drinking? She's a grown-up, responsible for herself. And I almost cried when you shouted "ALCOHOLISM IS A DISEASE"!!! So touching. Funny though, child molestors say the same sh!t. Guess it's not right to chuck stones at them either?
Oh and by the way, most of here haven't been convicted of vehicular manslaughter so uh....we can pass judgement. As for YDR not doin research, once she pleads guilty the mystery is over, no need to do much digging.

You are correct, alcoholism is a disease, but it does NOT justify the killing of two people. You are making excuses for this woman and her actions. She will NEVER beat this additiction with people like you covering for her. As far as the bruising, who cares - bottom line is her "beatings" had nothing to do with HER CHOICE to drive drunk. She did this on her own will - she will have to live with the fact she murdered two people.

Well number one it does not matter if he was DRUNK, he was in the passenger seat for shits sake. Maybe you should read all the articles before you comment, because if I recall right she DID go to AA. There is no way YOU should even have commented here because even you don't know the FULL story so do us all a favor and keep your mouth shut. This is after all the second person she killed... Maybe it is time to throw her in a cell and throw the key away so she can't hurt no one else.

I agree, Alcoholism is a disease. Tell us about the first person she killed? What do you know about that? How does his family feel? What about Ms. Fetrow's family? Why didn't they seek help for her? I am assuming you are either family or close friend. Why didn't you get her help?

Well this is a sad story all the way around and no matter what side you are on here. Everyone should be on the side of "this was very unfortunate." After that, you can go in whatever direction you need to. While I don't blame our judicial system,(its obvious that this woman never learned her lesson), they missed the signs completely. Back in 99, or early 2000's the laws were just changing in PA to become more strict, but apparently they weren't there yet when she was arrested back then. With her record, though, and this happening, it would seem to me #1, she'll be in jail for a long time. 13 years does not seem like enough, but 30 does. She'll probably wind up somewhere in between.#2, have driving priveleges revoked forever.#3, if she survives jail, to have her on a probationary term for the rest of her life, and repurcussions of breaking probation are life in jail, or if you're from Texas, death. This woman made poor choices, and as a result, 2 people are dead. No amount of time or punishment can bring those 2 people back to their families.
