July 2nd, Fort Collins Court

July 2nd, Fort Collins Court sentencing for Theresa Marie O'Connor is coming up.

Lets make sure this doesn't get forgotten and time to PACK the COURT HOUSE!! We need to show that killing people the ride bikes is a serious crime. Tell the judge and our representatives that there has to be a BIG punishment!!

The sentence was handed down yesterday

This woman, Theresa Marie O'Connor, hit and killed a cyclist, ran from the scene leaving him lying on the side of the road and didn't turn herself in for several days. Even though the story says she has been sentenced to a year in prison she will be allowed to serve that on work release so in all likelihood she will serve no jail time at all. http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/local-news/woman-sentenced-in-fort-...
