Felony conviction for texting driver who killed motorcyclist

Quote:
A text message could land a Goshen woman to prison.

This week, a jury convicted Ana Gomez, 24, of one felony count of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence and one infraction count of driving while using an electronic communications device.

Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 14, where prosecutors will argue for the maximum sentence of six years in prison.

I keep thinking that's how I want to go. Just >bam< and gone. The older I get the more people I'm seeing dying slowly as their body falls apart, disease, cancer and after seeing my dad waste away I'm thinking tboned by Freightliner at 65 doesn't sound too bad. Well hopefully not dragged down the road under a hot engine but yea,...

Minutes up to the crash.... thats a very big window.

Can u imagine how long even a single minute would seem if we are talking laptimes between 2 bikes? To me that seems like you need a confesion to make that charge stick. To be able to determine when letters are typed and when packets are actually encapsulated and transmitted are not exacty in perfect sequence.

I'm all for her getting the max. This texting and driving is getting out of hand and they def arent enforcing it. I pretty much stopped using my bikes as daily's cause cars on 45 are trying to turn me into a pinball. I now have spinal injuries from a girl last year who was texting and slammed into the back of my car going almost 60mph. She never even saw the row of cars dead stopped. And cause of her I had 7 herniated discs....already had 3 replaced in my neck and am getting the other 4 in my lower back replaced in the next few months here. I'll have pain in my neck and back for life cause she was discussing where to meet for breakfast w her bestie.
