Detroit family outraged over sentencing for deadly I-96 crash
DETROIT – Judge Cynthia Hathaway is expected to sentence 38-year-old Rosalynn Allen to one year in jail.
The woman pleaded no contest to a car crash that killed Sherita Lindsay and her boyfriend Howard Hill. Allen was charged with reckless driving causing death and leaving the scene of an accident.
The victims' family has a message for the judge.
"Please, your honor, please. I want justice, because it's not right," said Deborah Lindsay, Sherita's mother. "I am so begging."
Last August, Hill and Lindsay were killed while changing a tire on I-96. The couple parked their car in the gore separating the freeway from the Wyoming entrance ramp. Michigan State Police say a driver sideswiped their car and hit the couple.
Allen pulled over before leaving on foot. Hill was killed instantly and Lindsay died a few days later.
While guidelines suggest 43 to 86 months, Allen could spend just 12 months behind bars.
