As I've said on many occasions, Ms. Huertas and drunk drivers like her, actually receive life sentence--this is not hyperbole. If you have a conscience, you don't shake your responsibility for the harm you drunkenly did others, just because you were sentenced for the criminal offense.
According to the Daily News story:
"[Huertas] eyes red-rimmed with tears, [ . . .] agreed she deserved punishment.
'I am not a monster,' the mother of three said while members of her family sobbed. 'I am a loving mother who made a horrible decision that caused the death of a wonderful child. I know that I must be punished.'"
Huertas, own daughter was injured in the crash when she lost control of her speeding van on a curve.
