Mother of 3 receives 2 year sentence for throwing drink into another car


Source Link: news.aol.com

A mother of three was sentenced to two years in prison by a jury for throwing a cup of ice into a car that cut her off in traffic. A judge can still reduce the sentence Wednedsay.

"What's disturbing about this case is the real lack of proportionality in the sentencing," Court TV's Lisa Bloom said. "Two years in prison, two years for her kids not to have a parent. That seems unduly harsh."

Even the occupants of the other car — sticky and angry at the time — are shocked at the final sentence.

But the prosecutor argued that the cup was a missile and could have caused major damage.

Continuing the recent theme of pointing out irrelevant facts, what does it matter that she is the "mother of three"?

You'd think a "mother of three" would have better sense than to throw something into another car.

Let's take it a step further:

"The dependent wife of a soldier stationed in Iraq and mother of three..."

If the thread title is misleading, might as well add some additional sympathy words to better get the emotions flowing.

This woman was sentenced to PROBATION!!! HELLO! She's on probation, and most likely won't even meet with a probational officer.

Move on, nothing to see here.
