I can not believe she didn't get any jail time! 6 months house arrest and 3 years of probation! I really hope she learned a lesson from all this.

Try putting your glasses on, she got 60 days house arrest. The only mistake she made was no having a license operator in the car. Did you read. She wasn't speeding, she wasn't talking on her phone, or racing with another care going 80 mph like reported. Get it through your head she was doing 51 mph and distracted by trying to get her daughter to buckle in. Normally parents would pull to the side of the road but she was on a ramp. Idiot leave this lady alone.

Plaxico gets two years for shooting himself, he didn't cause a death, great system.

drive over this bridge on a night when the moon is half full on the bridge you will see the water looks like the road if your windows are not clean or you are confused a little the water is so calm it looks like a road and because it is a off ramp you could mistake the water being an off ramp their is a street light pool but it has been off/broke also the bridge doesn't have lights on it along the street

You are 100% wrong! That ramp is lighted and very clearly marked with large signs. This ramp has 4 lanes - 2 on the right go towards Route 5 in North Utica; the other lanes go towards Rome. Why was Ms. Johnson in the right lane heading towards N. Utica/Route 5 to begin with if she was headed home to Rome?

There is absolutely NO justification for what Ms. Johnson did that night. There are shoulders on the arterial for her to have pulled over and made her daughter buckle up which would have saved her life.

That night this happened was a dark and raining night and Ms. Johnson was an inexperienced driver on a road she was not familiar with and had the responsibility of two passengers in the car with her - her sister and her own child. All of these reasons would have made any responsible driver know to drive slow - but Ms. Johnson was driving too fast for the road conditions which resulted in her daughter's death.

You can spin this tragedy any way you want but the majority of us feel Justice was NOT done - Ms. Johnson should be sitting in a jail cell for at least 10 years on the charge of Vechile Manslaughter - NOT a slap on the hand with Probation and confined to her home for a mere 60 days.

I actually have spun out on the very same ramp when it was rainy. If her child unbuckled herself, certainly that ramp in the dark and the rain wouldnt of been the ideal place to pull over to re-restrain her child.

Idiot, she was buckled in when the car was put into gear, but like some children they unbuckle and parents only have the option of pulling over but it was a ramp and she couldn't.

Dam freaking idiots. Now what your talking about.

So you pick and choose which killers to "hate" I can see that your grandmother did a very lousy job raising her LARGE grandaughter/son.

There are shoulders on the arterial BEFORE this ramp where she should have pulled off and stopped the car and went back to where her little girl was seated and REBUCKLED her in the car seat. That is what responsible mature mothers would have done.
