Driver gets 1 year for Fatal Hit-and-run in Fort Collins

From Coloradoan

Theresa Marie O'Connor, 28, was sentenced to 4 years of probation in addition to one year of time at the Larimer County Jail. If she qualifies, that 1-year straight jail sentence could be served on a work release program, meaning she would spend the day working and the rest of the time in custody. She must also pay $24,487 in restitution to the man's family and will pay more than $5,000 to Bike Fort Collins to advocate for safe cycling and bike awareness in the community.

Justice ???

The sentence was better than first reported. Still not enough. The county attorney should be ashamed of the initial plea deal.

No it is time for the civil wrongful death case. The family should win with ease but will never collect.
