Light sentence for #Malibu elite who ran down, killed, immigrant

Screenshot 2017-11-20 at 07.25.12Nicole Herschel, the driver of the pickup truck involved in the fatal crash in June 2016, became emotional in a Van Nuys courtroom as she pleaded no contest to vehicular manslaughter.

Herschel, a Malibu horse trainer who crashed into two pedestrians in a crosswalk, killing one of them, and later denied to police that she was the driver in the collision was sentenced Thursday to one year in jail.

The victim’s family  had unsuccessfully petitioned the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office to pursue more serious charges against Herschel.

By hey, she’s from Malibu and they are from China, so fat chance. It’s how California’s elites roll.

Prosecutors asked that Herschel be taken to jail immediately, but the judge allowed her to remain free until Jan. 26. Naturally.
