Mom Faces More Jail Time Due To 'Jaywalking' Than The Driver Who Killed Her Son

Raquel Nelson, 30 is facing jail time for, get this "homicide by vehicle" and she wasn't even driving. Nelson and her children were crossing the street after they got off of the bus and Nelson's son, A.J. Nelson, 4, was struck and killed by an alleged drunk driver. The killer part is Ms. Nelson is facing more jail time, than the guy who was driving. Her crime, 'NOT USING THE CROSSWALK'. Now I ask, is putting her in jail really necessary? She lost her son and what about her other children? We hope that the people and the judge show compassion when she is sentenced this week and ST wishes this mother well. Read more (here).
