It's sad to say this she should've been in school . The defendent should've been in somebodys college furthering his education. Parents need to stay focus on their children at all times ask question I mean ask serious ones too .

The guilt he has to carry is enough punishment. He has to live with this for the rest of his life.

What does driving 85 mph on a city street have to do with parental responsibility? Shameful that he gets to walk away from an accident like that and his underage girlfriend dies.

76-85mph in a 25mph zone!!! It was just a matter of time b4 this idiot killed somebody! You can go to jail just 4 reckless driving (20mph over) alone!

19 year old man kills underage girlfriend while endangering lives! Didn't even get probation comunity service like speaking to high school kids about reckless driving. Nobody is held accountable 4 their actions.

The victim's family will suffer for the rest of their lives & their family will never be the same! Sad & senseless! I wish them luck!

Perhaps my father could have been there more for him if he did not have a crazy B***h always taking his attention away from his kids!!! My father did not fail him and he is and always will be there for him. Don't use this accident to downgrade my father!! We've been through enough dealing with this tragedy and now is NOT the time to start pointing fingers as to who is to blame for this.

DAVID SOLOMON GUTHRIE, people and opinions are cruel. Two families have gone through horrific tradegy. The pain and anguist run deep and will always be there. The memories will lessen but will always be there to remind. What has happened was not intentiona on your part. You did not want anyone to die. People will forget, but you will never forget. You are your own judge and jury. No civil court and jury could punish you more than you are punishing yourself.
Let people say what they will say, only you truly know what has happen and who has suffered.
I know you did not intend to hurt anyone.
Forgive yourself and let not people judge you less they judge themselves. Let go, Let God.

Except for emergency vehicles, there is no plausible reason to be speeding, especially that far above the residential area speed limit. The manslaughter was, indeed, involuntary, but being an adult, and behind the wheel, he should been responsible enough to know that speeding could very well likely lead to an accident. And it did. I feel no remorse at saying that I am disappointed with the outcome of the trial.

I just want to finally repond to the murder who killed my daughter. My daughter contracted verneral disease twice from you as per doctor notes. I have my daughter's letter to you (12/06) stating that you could be death of you. I spent time and money to get her help. I worked 3 jobs to support myself and 2 daughters. I have you poorly written apologies to my daughter when you mistreated her. There are many children being used by people like you DAVID. It is just a matter of time before you kill someone elses daughter. Just like the time you flipped the car you were driving in newport news. The 2nd car wreck in the same year you killed my daughter. God in his own time will take care of you! IT goes to show that a good attorney who has repore with a judge can let a murder go free. It did not help that hampton police in my opinion are idiots. The police did not review the tire marks left in the road until 1/4/2007. Why was this!!!??? I said to the prosecutor how could the police go out the following day after the accident. This just helps David. The defense will bring that up in court and they did. The police also contradicted themselves on the witness stand. I always felt david would not be punished. You are right David I am crazy about my daughters. To those that would HARM them. YOU MURDERER!!!!!!!!!!

How can a father claim he cares about his children but talk about them in such a bad way...advertising to everyone online about diseases? Trying to make someone else look bad at the expense of Kristen who is no longer here to defend herself.

This is for the idiot who made a retarded comment based on sheer stupidy. David G. killed my daughter and gave her social diseases and I want every female that he should come in contact with him to know that he does not care about anyone but himself and infected my daugher 2 times because he would not get to a doctor. Or worse yet he was doing it with other women outside of my daughter. Women beware!!!!!!!!!!

Mr. Malcolm you have two more daughters to live for. Please for your own sake find peace for them. The only person your anger hurts is you. As impossible as it sounds it is forgiveness that heals. What this young man did will plague him every day of his life. If he is loosing sleep at night it's not because of your anger, it's because of his guilt. I have felt this hate before towards someone who had done me a great injustice, but that hate only hurt me. That hate changed me, masking the real me. It wasn't until I let go of the anger that I finally started to heal. I pray that you can find away to let go.

Marvin, you cant blame anyone but life. Thats life people die! Kristen is in a better place i dont think dave meant too harm kristen but even if he did there is a higher power judging him. You werent the best father too your daughters and we all know that. You were the one that got kristen involved with dave and his friends, kristen did bad things smoked, drugs, and she would sneak out that you knew about and could have changed BUT YOU DIDNT TRY TOO STOP HER LIKE PARENTS ARE SUPOSTO DO, NO YOU LET HER YOU WHERE TOO BUSY! TOO BUSY FOR YOUR KIDS!! Like what did u expect whould happen too her in the long run? Im not blaming you but im telling you shouldnt blame dave when you werent perfect! Whats done is done we can never get back kristen the best you can do is forgive and allow yourself too move on. Just remember shes looking down on you.-
