DUI victim's family medical bills
Last year, the Nelson family was hit by unspeakable tragedy when father and husband Chris was killed by an uninsured drunk driver.

Here is her Victim's Impact Statement. It is 26 mins long, but is very powerful and packed with details and feelings. It is very sad to hear the pain in her voice. His dad was also killed by a drunk driver when Chris was only a young boy.
Today the drunk driver that killed Chris was sentenced to just 5 years in prison. How is it possible that killing someone is regarded as such a light crime in this case?
