I'm so sad... This life chapter has finally come to a close for my dear friend, but I wish this part of her story was more victorious for her!
My dear friend, Melanie, was hit by an impaired driver on May 19, 2004. Her 3 year old son, Hunter, was killed instantly.
It has been a long and difficult two years awaiting justice for this family. Today, the district attorneys accepted a plea bargain with Joshua Harris (the impaired driver). He is sentenced to only two years in jail! His charges included vehicular homicide by intoxication (Zanex, Meth, and Cocaine!), reckless aggravated assault, and possession of drug paraphernalia. (Click here or here to see the news stories.)
I'm so disappointed in our justice system for allowing this man - who had 4 prior convictions - to be on the road in the first place. And now, in just 2 years time, after his 5th conviction, he will be out there once again...
And so I pray, for Melanie and her family.... give them Jesus!
