California laws on DUI hit & run pedestrian death.

Oooh, possibly batting clean-up for my buddy @borndem:

https://www.kannlawoffice.com/hit-and-run

(IDK anything about this law firm and trust/hope they transcribed this material accurately.)

California Vehicle Code § 20001- Felony Hit and Run

California Penal Code §20001 applies when a driver leaves the scene of an accident, without leaving identifying information, and someone other than the driver was injured or killed.


Penal Code § 20001 can be charged as a misdemeanor or as a felony. If convicted of a misdemeanor the punishment is:


• A fine of between 1,000 and 10,000 dollars;


• Up to one year in county jail.


If convicted of a felony, the punishment includes:


• A fine of between 1,000 and 10,000 dollars;


  • 16 months to 3 years in state prison;
• 2 – 4 years in state prison in cases where death or serious injury occurred.


Sounds like a felony to me, with 2 deaths? Potentially sentenced to 16 months to 4 years in prison? Personally, seeing a big ol' fine in this case jmho.

This is really sad because the Grossman Burn Center is a God Send for our community. They have donated so much time and vital resources and support towards needy Burn Victims over the years.

I personally knew of one family , here in Westlake Village, whose young son was badly burned when an older child poured lighter fluid on the family BBQ one Sunday.

The Grossman Burn centre saved his life, and donated most of their services to the family, because their insurance did not cover much of the expensive treatments necessary. They had a support group for family members and for the victims, as they continued their difficult surgeries and treatments and helped the families get to the hospital, etc.

Project Faith
PROJECT FAITH
Founded in 2007, Project Faith provides basic support services for wound and burn care including burn survivors and their families during treatment.

Through Project Faith, the Grossman Burn Foundation may provide to those who qualify:
* Medical Treatment (surgery, steroid injections, medicine, etc.)
* Physical Therapy
* Psychotherapy
* Medical Tattooing
* Housing and Meals
* Transportation to medical appointments
* Network of volunteers to serve as as support system for the patient and his/her family
* Medical supplies such as compression garments and face masks


So it is really sickening that this woman did such a despicable deed, and trashed and ruined the reputation of her family name...and killed two precious young boys, and tried to get away with it.

There have been charitable people who turned out to be evil. Jim Jones, Jerry Sandusky, and Jimmy Savile comes to mind. They were seen as pillars of their communities.

Similar case in Indiana, this criminally irresponsible driver killed one adult:


An Evansville man is sentenced to prison for a deadly hit and run last summer. Dylan Birdwell, 21, was sentenced to ten years in prison and five years of probation.

“One boy was allegedly carried 100ft on the hood of the car before Grossman braked, at which point he fell off the car and she ran him over again as she fled the scene.”


Thank you for posting this link. This story is hard to stomach. My thoughts are with the victim’s family. I really wish for justice in this case, but that may be too wishful. *My opinions
