Light sentence for fatal DUI sends the wrong message

By Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:
Residents of Kansas were left in shock recently when the sentence for the offender of a drunk driving fatal crash was announced. As a resident of Tonganoxie and a member of MADD’s State Advisory Board, I have to ask, what message does a 60-day sentence for a person guilty of killing two people send to the victims of a drunk driving crash? What message does this 60-day sentence send to the would-be drunk drivers on Kansas roads?
