The A.D.A. had to do what he believed to be the right thing. That's the ethical duty of every prosecutor. It is not always easy.
The right thing was far from satisfactory to a broken father and mother, who will never fully recover. Their sentence is a life sentence. That's a life of grief, disappointment and probably anger. We can only hope and pray for healing for these loving parents.
The biggest question of all is a simple one. Mr. Guy worked for a hospice. At the hospice they provide life sustaining care for those who are dying. How does a person like that leave another person to die on the side of the road? How does a person like that repeatedly endanger the lives of others by driving impaired? We may never know. Any answer would sound like a shabby excuse two weeks after the crime.
