Stiffer sentences

After reading a third letter on April 12 about the unfortunate Lindsay Hauck accident, I feel obligated to include another perspective.

Everyone agrees the outcome was horrible and shouldn’t have happened. The accused driver also has a family that must be suffering.

If after this, that driver doesn’t learn and feel something she will have to live with for the rest of her life, no other punishment would mean anything.

I won’t pretend to offer a better sentence, but a different perspective of the offense.

The crime here appears to always highlight the results, not the offense. How many of us have never driven after drinking?

How many times have we heard of multiple drunk driving offenses for a particular driver who is still driving? If their penalty is strong enough that they are not allowed to drive, they drive without a licence or insurance.

Sentences need to be dealt with increasingly harshly per incident for those fortunate enough to avoid these horrific results before they happen.
