"Close relations with prosecutors"

This likely means she will not survive her short jail term, so that she can't squeal against those with more power than this tiny scapegoat.

She could not have been acting alone. Especially with "close relations".

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Does the name Frederic Whitehurst ring a bell ?

If you are ever on jury duty remember this--Never ever believe anything the government or their stooges say as a sworn "expert".

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.

They pulled the same stunt in

They pulled the same stunt in WA State not once, but twice that I know of. This is racketeering and this is how they stack the charges.

At the same time, the WA State does not legally monitor breathalyzer readings, they go by cops testimony. How well do you think that goes over? In a state that posts .08 signs and yet charges people DUI as low as .01 percent (alcohol only, 21 and over), how much do you think they are made out to be stumbling, argumentative, drunks? Stand up for your rights, how far do you think that will get you?

This is racketeering and if they are doing it there, they are doing it here. If they have done it to me, they are doing it to other people.

This is fraud, all in the name of science. I just wonder if the Insurance Industry is in on the greasing of palms ....or is it the lawyers and the Bar?

send her to Guantanamo Bay to be tortured?


Three to five years!!!!

Three to five years? She should do one year for every year she deprived of their lives. All the prosecutors who were in on it should do the same. Outrages.

oh no, no, no. she worked for the government. didn't you

know that automatically reduces your sentence by at least half?

Go after the prosecutors as well.

Besides all the victims of her crimes, how about considering all those who might have known about her doings, but were profiting so much by the court-room and incarceration needs she falsely created, that they took the money and trashed the lives of innocent people, by letting her go on; or worse, even actively supporting her?
