A no-nonsense judge from Michigan is getting attention from people across the world for a decision she made during a court hearing.
There have been numerous cases over the years where judges made questionable decisions.
Some of them were perplexing enough to warrant appeals.
In some situations, the judges provide sentences based on the knowledge that most people in the jury find unrelatable.
However, everyone agreed with Qianna Lillard’s decision to sentence a woman to jail for laughing at the family of a thirty-one-year-old, who lost his life to a horrific accident.
A twenty-five-year-old girl named Amanda Kosal was drunk driving in the streets of Michigan.
She was intoxicated to the point that she couldn’t control the car’s steering and crashed into another vehicle, killing one person and severely injuring another.
There was also some collateral damage that cost people a considerable sum of money.
People immediately alerted the authorities, and they took away the perpetrator.
Initially, the police and doctors assumed that both of the victims were alive.
However, upon reaching the hospital, they found out that one of them passed away. The victims were a happily engaged couple.
The wife to be, Brittany Johnson, had severe bruises and scars but was fortunate enough to avoid life-threatening injuries.
Her soon to be husband, Jerome Zerker however, did not survive the collision.
According to reports from the doctors, his body crashed headfirst onto the ground, causing severe internal bleeding, which caused him to die.
The Courtroom Incident
It looked like Amanda Kosal’s senseless act was going to cost her dearly.
However, things took a bizarre turn when the victim’s family appeared in court.
Their advocates were going back and forth, trying to get the best decision for their defendant.
The hearing lasted very long, which was surprising, considering how clear cut the case was.
