Larry & Sierra Gaunt Update

Yesterday, authorities charged the man who killed Larry and Sierra Gaunt while they rode around Longview Lake... He was charged with 2 counts of Involuntary Manslaughter. Depending on the Jury's decision on the degree, he could face either a 4- or 7-year maximum sentence for each charge. Those are the maximums, though. The actual sentence could be less.

I think everyone that's driven has let their attention lapse for 10 seconds or so at one time or another. I hope that this is a wake-up call to motorists that inattention on the road can lead to consequences far more severe than a wrecked car or simply a hand-slap and feeling the guilt for killing someone. While I'm sure that there's significant emotional trauma over what happened, this needed to happen for the sake of ALL users of the road.

5 to 7 is too cheap for all the hope and promise that was snuffed out.
