While you were sleeping (and not reading my blog)
Well, my tiny little post has gotten some attention from people claiming to have intimate knowledge of the situation.
I wish I had something witty to say, but I don't. It is just a very sad story from all angles.
Rita Johnston pled guilty to involuntary manslaughter and doesn't have to go to jail. The Judge felt sorry for her and gave her 3 years of probation and some community service.
For my two cents, Patrick Sr. has every right to be pissed about the sentence. I sure would be. I think my suggested sentence was death by hot car in the summer sun, and I stick by it.
So anyway, if you get a chance, read the comments, they are very telling of different sides of the story. If only I could get the real Rita Johnston to leave some comments and tell her side...
