I agree with the mother of this young girl. The other parents will be in and out of our justice system in no time at all. I believe these parents should be held to even a higher standard than the young man driving the car. THEY are directly responsible for the death of this young lady. What kind of a parent would knowingly give alcohol to teenagers, and then let them drive away. I hope they receive the maximum penalty allowed by law for their actions.

How sad is it to live in a country where a drug addict will do more time in prison than these people who are responsible for this child's death. There is no excuse to allow teenagers to drink. That does not make you a cool parent....it makes you..... no parent at all.

They will never be punished enough. If I were to ever be responsible for an accident that took a life, I would punish myself to no end, as most people probably would. My conscience would never be clean. But these people who supplied the alcohol and then let this teen drive away in the wee hours with other lives in the car probably have no conscience. Eye for an eye.......they should both do life. Although they would still never suffer as much as these people who have lost a child. The Mounce family will remain in my prayers.

They should be used to make an example to all the parents that think this is ok. My daughter was raped at a home where a parent went out of town and left his child home alone for his 17th birthday, in a home stocked with liquor. His birthday boy raped my daughter after drinking heavily. Without being to specific this happened in the bluff creek neighborhood in nw okc. Parents don't assume because where you live this can not happen to your child. Yes my daughter is alive but scarred for life by this one night. My daughter had known this boy for years, we had no reason to believe that he would hurt her. Alcohol impairs ones ability to think logically. I hope you get the justice for your child that she deserves. A slap on the wrist is just not enough. You will be in my prayers.

I don't recall hearing this story, but I am sorry this unfortunate thing happened. I also believe Oklahoma is too lenient on people who get caught drinking and driving. I was recently t-boned by a drunk driver when I got off work about a month ago. She ran and an hour later came back to the scene to say that she got hit and I ran. My car was totaled and I ws about a foot and a half away from falling into a 14ft ditch. She got a ticket... Where's the justice? Good luck in bringing the Kyle's to their long-needed destiny!

The people that choose to provide alchol to minors and the one that chose to get behind the wheele to drive is just as guilty as the other, One year served in county is just basicly giving the adults a slap on the wrist, they will go out and do it again, because i look at it this way they will live another day to serve alchol to minors , and the family has to live everyday with the choice that the adults made to provide alchol to the family's daughter. The family in tuttle have a rough road ahead of them, I pray for them, as for the family that provided the alchol to the minors, I hope they can live with the decission that they made, it was the wrong decission. i agree with the family in tuttle the sentence was no where stiff enough it does not fit the crime. In my oppion they need to be put in prison for the rest of their life to think about the decission that they made that night.

Any Adult that provides alcohol to a Minor should be charged with a Strong charge, and if there is a death involved, the Charges should be Even Greater.
IT'S ASHAME THE PARENTS WILL ONLY GET UP TO 9 YEARS FOR CAUSING A DEATH... Shame on Oklahoma for not having Stricter Laws!!

I thought the Oklahoma Law said if you were committing a felony AND someone dies you are responsible for that death. The idea is if you are driving the get away car for a bank robber AND someone dies you are guilty of murder.

It is a felony to give minors alcohol. So Why were these parents NOT charged with murder???????

Does ANYONE know the answer????

Here we go again! Soeone has been injured and the only thing they can think of is how hard they can penalize someone theey want to blame. It was a stupid mistake for the parents to do what they did. They were trying to be "cool" There are other parties to this issue here. The daughter didn't have to drink - but she did. The daughter didn't have to get into a car with a drunk driver - but she did. What happened to contributionary negligence here in this state? If we put everyine in jail who made stupid decisions they regretted, we would have empty streets.

Let me guess you are one of the ignorant who would not only condone this behavior, but you have probably hosted one of these parties.

I drive by the accident site every day taking my 5 year old son to Bridge Creek Elementary. I have stopped and showed my son the crosses and notes left from loved ones for this young girl. I explained to my son as best as I could about what happened. He asked me if the "bad guys" were in jail and sadly they will be but not long enough.
I pray for everyone involved, this has affected many people and is truely a tragic story.

Do you have kids, if so well i hope you use youre head to think and make the right decission, not to provide alchol to minors and if you dont have kids then you dont what the parents are going through. And if you do have kids how would you feel think about it that way.

My family and I are about to have to spend out first holiday season without Kaitlyn in it. v_v And to let you know Phil, he blood alchohol level was 0.0, she didn't even take a sip. She got into the car because the friend she was staying with did. She was a very sweet, smart, fun, and loving girl, who I will miss for the rest of my life....to everyone else thank you for your thoughts and prayers, my entire family appreciates them very much...

It wasn't very long ago that I was a teenager and parties like this go on all the time. The parents of one teenager will provide alcohol for their children and their friends. I think it's irresponsible for a parent to do this. It's even more responsible for these adults to think that these children (teenagers are still children in my eyes) are left to take care of themselves while they are intoxicated when most of them don't even know how to wash their own clothes or even make their beds.
I will say although I don't agree with parents supplying alcohol to their children let alone anyone else's children, there was a family that had a lot of acreage in the tiny little Oklahoma town I lived in and they would allow the teenagers to come out for a bonfire and hang out and also drink. But upon arriving, the parents would take a five gallon bucket and make each set of keys be thrown into the bucket. They would supervise these kids and make them sleep overnight at their home. In the morning they were allowed to leave if they could fish their keys from the bucket, but not until then. I think even though they provided the kids a place to go and drink they also ensured that everyone made it home safely.
