Woman Laughs over Killing Man While Driving Drunk
Justice finally? I guess that it takes a woman to be exceptionally obnoxious and cavalier to receive proper sentencing by the legal system. You be the judge.
Laughter over death leads to longer sentence
Judge raps woman, already guilty of negligent homicide, for ‘inhumanity’

TUCSON, Arizona – A judge sentenced a woman to nearly the maximum prison term for negligent homicide after hearing a recorded jail conversation in which she made light of the cyclist she killed.
Melissa Arrington, 27, was convicted two months ago of negligent homicide and two counts of aggravated drunk-driving in connection with the December 2006 death of Paul L’Ecuyer.
She could have received as few as four years behind bars, but Superior Court Judge Michael Cruikshank sentenced her Tuesday to 10 1/2 years — one year shy of the maximum.
