Mother of 2 killed by 20-year old drunk driver WITH 3 PRIOR DUI’S!!!

Mother killed by 20-year old drunk driver WITH 3 PRIOR DUI’S!!!

OPINION: This is a case where the system has clearly failed. This 20-year old already had 3 prior DUI’s and was still walking around free and driving on a suspended license. He should have already been in prison but the judge let him walk “with restrictions”. Now an innocent mother of 2 is dead because of that decision. Things need to change so that DUI gets mandatory prison time BEFORE someone is killed.
