Thursday "Sound Off": Is Young Life Too Cheap In Fond du Lac?
For our Thursday "Sound Off" question, we're asking "Whether a six month jail sentence for killing an infant while driving drunk is fair?'
In August of 2007, a car driven by Baierl crossed the center line of Highway 175 and rammed head on into into another vehicle. Three people were seriously injured in the crash. Seven-month-old Karen Garcia was killed. Baierl's blood alcohol level at the time of the crash was .27 (over three times the legal limit). She was subsequently convicted of homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle.
Yesterday, Judge Nuss put Baierl on probation for 15 years with the condition that she spend the first 6 months in a County Jail. She was also ordered to maintain absolute sobriety, to assist the surviving victims with their living expenses and to participate in six public speaking events per year.
Give us a call at (414) 967-5304 and let us know what you think about the sentence. You can also send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Then be sure to tune in to "Live at 3" on Today's TMJ 4 and see if we include your comments.
