Michelle simply made a mistake. Her poor decision making doesn't make her a murderer but this something she will have to live with the rest of her life knowing that someone lost their life because of her choice to get behind the wheel. I am a recovering alcoholic who was lucky that I never killed anyone. However, my alcoholism landed me in prison for 13 months. She has a difficult road ahead of her.

Why don't you do it but practice shooting yourself in the head first to make sure you know the gun works.

Yes shoot yourself for making such a crude remark. I know what Michelle is going through. I knew I was going to prison and I spent every day I had left with my children.

If you don’t know the whole story don’t comment. Michelle is a wonderful person and there were many factors to play in this situation. If you don’t know the facts don’t be judgmental and rude. She’s kind hearted and would never hurt anyone intentionally. Prayers for both families.

How Dare You! She SIMPLY Made a mistake!?! Really? Our family has forever lost A Husband, Father, Brother, Uncle, Cousin & Friend! He was Kind, Caring, Compassionate & Loved his Family with everything that he had in him. Our Family is Broken! He was a Coach, a Teacher & musician. Her CHOICE did cause her to KILL our LOVED ONE which is MURDER!

I agree. So sorry for the loss of your loved one.
Some people just don't get it. Until it happens to their loved ones. Hypocrisy is the norm anymore.

My condolences to your family. I know she didn't wake up that morning with plans to kill anyone just as your loved one didn't have plans to die that day. Yes her choice took a life and she will be reminded daily of it. I spent 13 months in prison for my alcoholism and believe me it's no walk in the park.

What the heck exactly happened? The media reports didn’t say much.

A story too common. Drunk person kills innocent person. But this story is different, because she didn't mean to. That changes everything.

I don't think Larry Mahoney meant to either.

Tired of hearing excuses! When you take that drink you already know the chances you are taking. There is way too much information out there to not know what can happen.

You're absolutely right. I'm not trying to excuse her behavior. All I'm trying to say is, as a recovering alcoholic who has been in prison understands the anxiety she is going through about the unknown of her future.

As a relative of the deceased I can tell you that from my perspective it doesn't feel like she simply made a mistake. Damn her eyes.

Ahhh, she would never intentionally hurt anyone. I can only hope this burdens her without peace for the rest of her life.

I‘m sick of all the he/she is a wonderful, kind-hearted person who made a “mistake” and didn‘t mean to kill anyone while driving drunk. A mistake is forgetting to invert a fraction that you‘re dividing by another fraction or putting salt instead of sugar in sweet potato souffle, not choosing to swill inebriating substances and weaponize your car.

My statement is a general comment. I have been sober for some years now and by the Grace of God was given Mercy. I am a blackout drunk and that means I continued to function (walk, drive, work, etc) in blackouts, not knowing or remembering anything I did. My subconscious was making my decisions. The extremely scary piece of that is when having “come to”, usually the next day, the first thing I would do is look at my car to see if there were any dents or blood on it. I never hear about the bkackout piece of drinking and driving. When in a blackout out, one does things they wouldn’t do nornally, like drink and drive. This is a serious piece of the harm alcoholic drinking can cause, especially if you are a blackout drunk like me. Alcoholics have at least 2 personalities, it is described as a Dr Jekyll Mr Hyde personality. For me, when drinking, Mr Hyde is in control and bad decisions are made that can have devastating consequences for anyone in my path.

Alcohol should be illegal. I was a blackout drunk too. I don't drink anymore, not in "recovery" just decided I was tired of hearing about my stupid behavior the next day.
