Hit-and-run killer gets more jail time for drugs (Sam Spital)

“Fox 5 News reported on September 12, 2012, a Defendant previously convicted and incarcerated for a felony hit and run killing was sentenced to more jail time. She was charged with and pled guilty to smuggling drugs into jail; she made phone calls to help another inmate get drug laced greeting cards into the jail; and, was found in possession of marijuana and non- prescription drugs.

The defense argued she made bad choices, was sexually assaulted as a child and suffered psychological injuries.

The original sentence was unusually low — only one year in jail and three years’ probation, no doubt for several factors not fully set forth in the article.

She was a nursing student at the time of her first offense and has remorse for her past crimes. Let’s hope she gets her life together and is rehabilitated to make a positive contribution to society and her future.”
