I did a post recently about how a bad decision by a Wisconsin man resulted in him going to prison for 23 years. With that in mind, consider the sentence given to Linda Hamm.
As reported by the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Ms. Hamm pleaded guilty Monday to criminal vehicular homicide in the death of 54-year-old Ann Blake. Ms. Blake's blood alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit when she drove onto a concrete median and struck Ann Blake, a recently widowed 54-year-old mother of two. The impact of the collision threw Ms. Blake across "at least" four lanes of traffic. When she was apprehended by police, Ms. Hamm had an open bottle of vodka in her car.
So what sentence does one get for killing a 54-year-old and leaving two thirteen-year-olds orphans? A year in the Hennepin County workhouse, 120 hours of community service, an order to undergo treatment for chemical dependency, and random drug testing.
What do you think Mr. Torvik, was justice done?
