On March 26th, 2012 my Daughter in Law who was 6 months pregnant was killed in an auto accident. The lady who caused this accident that devastated our family walked away with 2 Misdemeanors, 1 for Careless and Imprudent and the other crossing the center line. This lady should have faced Involuntary Manslaughter and lost her drivers license at the least. She received a fine and 48 hours in jail and Our family was left broken,a mother to suffer, a young husband losing his soulmate, her 3 year old daughter left without her mommy. This law needs to be reviewed so that people who are careless have to face up to their actions and hopefully learn from it so there will be a change and no other family will suffer the way we have.
