While in high school... My best friend's sister & my sister's best friend ~Sharmelia~ was struck and killed by a drunk driver directly in front of our campus, right after school. Not only was the man extremely intoxicated, he in fact had 4 prior DUI charges; w/this being his 5th. Even with all priors taken into account -He was only sentenced to serve 4 YEARS IN PRISON & 4 YEARS OF PROBATION! THIS MAN KILLED A HUMAN BEING. IT WAS HIS 5TH DUI. THIS MAN WAS DRUNK AT 3PM... DRIVING RECKLESS @70MPH IN A SCHOOL ZONE & UNABLE TO KEEP HIS FUCKING CAR OFF OF THE FUCKING SIDEWALK. How is it even possible... 4 years?? He murdered a daughter, my best-friend's sister, my sister's best-friend, an honor roll student headed to college, an auntie w/the most beautiful smile, an intellectual... it's so horrible. I had to hold all in for years... I wasn't allowed to cry like everyone else. I had to make sure Ebony was good & my sister -it took her years to un-blame herself for things out of her control. He took more than just Sharmelia's life, he forever altered her entire family -literally destroyed ones closest to her.
•5x DUI veteran murders a student •Urged judge to push for the max= •4years x4prob
Yet.. Meek was on probation for 11 years?? ...Which is the first, last & only issue •Couple 'slap-on-wrist' violations; all dropped.
•Prosecutor & probation officer strongly urge against jail-time... So that's a 2-4 year offense?? A 5th offense for DUI/murder is 4 years? ...Maybe we should've sent Mr.DUI over to Meek's Judge n swapped out. Since she's over there just handing years out like she's crazy...☝🏾& CUZ she felt like it! Smh... While our judge was over there holding onto those years as if they were gonna start coming out of her paycheck. Disgusts me.
For the record...
Mr.DUI managed to get 5 DUIs, kill a human being, serve his 4 year sentence & complete his 4 year probation... Did ALLLLL of that AND STILL beat Meek by 2 years to spare. Sadly, this happens EVERY day.
