Sad times. In the absence of the US Authorities doing the right thing and banging up this woman for a lengthy stretch by causing death by Dangerous Driving I wonder if the family of Harry Dunn will be able to cripple her financially with a civil suit.

Goodness knows what Judge Judy 'd have to say about it all !

Dangerous driving?

Causing death by careless driving
A relatively minor error of judgment amounting to simple careless driving becomes the much more serious offence of causing death by careless driving if someone dies as a result. The offence can be tried either in a Magistrates’ Court or in the Crown Court. Where the case is heard will depend to large extent on how bad the piece of driving was. Circumstances vary from a momentary lapse in concentration with tragic results to a standard of driving falling not far short of dangerous driving. The maximum penalty in the Crown Court is 5 years imprisonment. Less serious cases are dealt with in the Magistrates’ Court where the maximum punishment is 6 months in prison. The court must impose a minimum period of 12 months disqualification and may order a re-take of the driving test

Is that "allegedly cripple the CIA" or "cripple the allegedly CIA" Or both :?
