    LOS ANGELES (AP) — A substance-abuse counselor was sentenced Thursday to 55 years to life in prison for hitting a pedestrian with her car and driving through a Los Angeles suburb with the dying man on her windshield.



    A jury earlier this year convicted Sherri Lynn Wilkins, 53, of second-degree murder, driving under the influence and hit-and-run.
    Prosecutors said Wilkins' blood-alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit when she struck 31-year-old Phillip Moreno in November 2012 as she was leaving a counseling center.
    She drove 2 miles through the city of Torrance before other motorists swarmed her car at a traffic light and kept her there until police arrived. Moreno was taken to a hospital, where he died.
    Superior Court Judge Henry Hall said, "Ms. Wilkins demonstrated an extraordinary callousness in fleeing the scene and trying to shake Mr. Moreno's body off her car. This is a callous murder, not an unfortunate act."
    Hall rejected a request from the defense and sentenced Wilkins under California's three strikes law, citing her long history of drug-related crimes. That tripled the minimum 15 years to life she otherwise could have received before being eligible for parole.

    Wilkins, who was a drug addict before she became a drug and alcohol counselor, contended she wasn't drunk that night. She claimed she was "self-medicating" while waiting for knee-replacement surgery and had consumed three single-serving bottles of vodka and a can of Budweiser beer and Clamato before starting to drive.
    In her first apology since that night, Wilkins turned toward 16 Moreno family members and friends in the courtroom Thursday and said what happened was a "tragedy."
    "I am sorry for the pain I caused you," she said. "It hurt so many people."
    The judge said he carefully considered the three strikes element.
    "Ms. Wilkins is not what we normally see," Hall said. "She's not a classic violent criminal. But you have to evaluate her history. She had an insatiable desire to become intoxicated."

    Sherri will have the last laugh when she walks out of prison when she is 108.

    another waste of taxpayer money while this whore gets high in jail.

    as a society, we should beat things like her on a daily basis.

    but that would be mean. :bigcry:

    Wasn't there a thread about the woman who did something similar but kept him alive for a few days in her garage, partying while he pleaded for life-saving medical help?

    Did I dream that?

    That was a young black woman was a nurses aide. She was driving from work at midnight and hit the guy, drove and put him in the garage. Somewhere in the south. I saw some of the trial on the old court TV . Miss that channel.
