In the UK we are disgusted with the meagre sentences handed out by the Judiciary in these cases. The Teenager was warned that she faced a sentence of 'up to five years in prison'. If past cases are an indication of sentence, she will probably get a suspended sentence which means 'ziltch'!! She may have to pay a fine and get 3-6 points on her licence. What a sad state of affairs when our Judges are so lenient in these sort of cases.
If you want to get an idea of the strong feeling in the UK I suggest you view the Blog with the full report of the case.
that's so sad ! it reminds me of an article I read on Play City at Youth Noise about a drunk driver running over a bicyclist (Cristophe Le Canne) and continuing to drive, pulling the bike with it! Check out the article here.
