Sitting in the courtroom with tears of regret and sadness flowing freely, the distraught family of a young woman who was killed in a car crash confronted her boyfriend, who had been driving under the influence of alcohol at the time of the fatal crash that took her life, according to a New York Criminal Lawyer.
Family and friends, one after the other, expressed their feelings in regards to how his stupidity and recklessness came at a most heartbreaking cost; the life of a beautiful dancer, athlete, sister, daughter and loving partner to others. The 19 year old girl had been dating the 20 year old suspect for several months and they had been happy with the relationship, reported the New York Criminal Lawyer.
But despite how happy they were or how much fun they had together during the time that they were dating, that fateful night of having fun at the expense of safety, of getting behind the wheel after having too many drinks, led to consequences that no one could have foreseen.
The suspect plead guilty on Friday, admitting his fault, knowing that he will never be able to reclaim what has been lost. His life, as well as the lives of everyone who knew and loved the victim and everyone that may have ever met her, are now forever changed.
The New York Criminal Lawyer went on to say that a 3 to 4 year sentence was being given to the man for the death. Though many of those in attendance thought that the verdict was not harsh enough, the deceased woman’s mother said that the punishment was fair, and she knew that the man had not meant to kill her daughter.
