Die Täterin und der Cop
Sie dachte, sie muss nur für einen Tag in den Knast. Und bekam 14 Jahre, weil sie zwei Leute tötete.
Hört da mal zu. Das ist wirklich gruselig.

An Illinois woman who was driving drunk when she hit and killed a Lorain County couple as they crossed the street outside a bar in East Peoria, Illinois, in April 2022 has been sentenced to 14 years in prison.
Stephanie Melgoza, 24, pleaded guilty to aggravated DUI and aggravated reckless driving in Illinois’ 10th Circuit Court in February. Judge Tim Cusack sentenced her in his Tazewell County, Illinois, courtroom on Thursday, according to multiple media reports.
Bradley University students organized a vigil to honor Rosewicz and Prowant after their deaths. When her fellow students learned Melgoza was going to be allowed to walk at graduation even after being charged in the fatal crash, they protested.
She was allowed to accept her diploma but removed from the list of students permitted to walk at graduation, The Bradley Scout reported Thursday.
