MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Amy Senser so regretted a hit-and-run crash that killed a rising young restaurant chef that she tattooed his name on her wrist and told his family she waits for the day she can meet him.
Senser, the wife of former Minnesota Viking Joe Senser, tearfully apologized to the family of Anousone Phanthavong on Monday, moments before a judge rejected her request for probation and sentenced her to nearly 3 1/2 years in prison.
Hennepin County Judge Daniel Mabley said Senser's remorse rang true, but he wasn't satisfied with her account of what happened last Aug. 23, when she struck and killed Phanthavong, 38, on a freeway exit ramp. Mabley said Senser avoided taking responsibility, even after the panic immediately following the crash had subsided.
