A 27-year-old woman from Frederikssund was at the Court of Roskilde on Thursday sentenced 20 days in jail, a fine of 2500 dollars and a disqualification from driving for six months, writes sn.dk.
This is the driver of the red Porsche Boxter, which in January ran into the 13-year-old Line Hessel, has now been convicted, even though she has not appeared in court.
Just the fact that the culprit was absent from the court, is Dorothy Hessel, Lines mother, very annoyed with.
- I would have liked a longer fængselstraf. But what I am most annoyed with, is that we could not get her views on the matter. The Line would also like to have seen her, it was the primary goal for her, telling Dorothy Hessel to the daily telegraph,
The 27-year-old woman was found guilty in the accident by not having shown due care and disregarded the essential conditions of not having adapted his driving according to the situation.
the Verdict was far from what the prosecutor Sophia Luxford went after.
She believed that the penalty would end in three months ' unconditional imprisonment, as well as 15-20 a daily fine of 200 crowns. In addition, she went after an additional fine of 10,000 crowns and an unconditional withdrawal of the licence.
She would after the sentencing at 12 o'clock read the judgment and then decide whether the matter should be appealed.
the Defender acknowledged that the basis of the information and documentation was the accused 27-year-old woman who was the driver of the car, when the accident happened.
controversy, however, was whether the woman should be judged according to the penal code in order to be escaped from the place of the accident without providing help, as the prosecutor believed.
