Do the crime.. do the time. Although 3 1/12 years for killing another human being seems a tad light imho

Hitting and killing a person on a roadway and not in a crosswalk is defensible since pedestrians do not have the right of way on roads. However, hitting and killing a person and then not stopping is not defensible.

It does seem like a light sentence, she'll be out next year already. Doesn't really seem fair, a normal person would be in jail much longer than this. Joe was part of this too, helping hide evidence and conspiring to avoid admission of guilt...he avoids jail.

What a miscarriage of justice. The man she hit was on drugs, used very poor judgement in running out of gas on the freeway, and certainly contributed to his being struck. It was a politically motivated prosecution. Why people are so hateful of Amy Senser, I do not understand. Other than living in Edina, she is no more different than many "soccer moms". Why was the drug evidence not allowed? Would the outcome have been different having another better connected lawyer? Draw your own conclusions. The jury even had reservations and sent a note to the judge which should have resulted in a mistrial.

Prime example of entitlement in the courts.

After watching the trial and reading the news stories, it was clear that there was reasonable doubt that she knew she hit someone.The state never proved that she knew this. An identical case was thrown out. She was a victim of class warfare and a politically motivated prosecuted who new a conviction would help him keep his job. She should not be in prison.
