US: 20 years in Prison for hit & run motorist who killed cyclist
Tough laws in the US for hit and runs who kill cyclists going into work. In soft Britain you'd be lucky with up to three years. It looks like this State is taking the matter really seriously.
Just why in Britain are we so lax with motorist killers?
"Michael Steele, a young husband and a hard worker who rode his bike to work, is dead.
Christina Rivkin, a wife and mother of two with an alcohol problem unchecked by in-patient care and participation in a 12-step program, is going to state prison for the next 20 years, followed by 20 years of probation. She had faced up to 50 years on DUI-manslaughter and charges of leaving the scene of a crash at a sentencing hearing Wednesday in Pensacola."
