Berner should drop appeal

A two and a half year prison sentence for causing the death of another human being is an extremely light sentence.

A two and a half year prison sentence for causing the death of another human being is an extremely light sentence. Throw in contributing factors like drinking while driving and excessive speed and you pretty much have yourself a cakewalk.

Carol Ann Berner, however, seems to think this cakewalk is far too rich for her. Did she drink and drive? Yes. Was she speeding at the time? Yes. Moreover, did her actions cause the death of a four-year-old girl and severely injure another person? Without question.

You killed someone, Ms. Berner. Now pull together whatever shreds of dignity and self-respect you seem to be seriously lacking and accept the punishment for your negligent and immature behaviour.
