    Are you kidding me.
    Kill somebody and get a misdemeanor with a year max.

    Get caught with drugs do 5 to 10 on a felony charge.

    This country is a mess.

    I am absolutely stunned and struggling for the appropriate words to post publicly, that this woman, who was clearly negligent, resulting in the death of a child is ultimately getting a slap on the wrist? It makes me sick. I can only hope the judge sentences her to the full year and not a minute less.
