    This just shows how sick and perverse our system CAN be at times. Ok, fine. Cite her for child endangerment or something... But prison time??? She LOST ONE OF HER CHILDREN to an ADMITTADLY drunk driver. Yeah, good call..... throw Mom in jail and fuck up the other two kids in the process.....

    Default No jail for mom whose son died jaywalking with her

    Raquel Nelson will not be going to jail at least not anytime soon.

    More from TODAY.com Mom thankful for probation in sons jaywalk death
    Updated 93 minutes ago 7/27/2011 12:05:55 PM +00:00 Raquel Nelson, whose son jaywalked with her across a busy road and was killed by a hit-and-run driver, says she is so thankful to the judge who gave her probation instead of jail time. NBC Lilia Luciano re

    ..The single mother from Marietta, Ga., who potentially faced more prison time for jaywalking than the man convicted for the hit-and-run accident that killed her 4-year-old son, was sentenced to 40 hours of community service and 12 months probation in Cobb County State Court, but then also given the option of a new trial in an unusual decision.

    One year probation, it was better than jail time, of course, a relieved Nelson told Ann Curry in an exclusive live interview Wednesday. I was just happy to be walking out of the courtroom.

    I'm not familiar with this ever happening, Nelsons attorney, David Savoy, told NBC News regarding the option for a new trial. But, he added, I was very pleased with the decision and I think she [the judge] made the right decision.

    Nelson put her feelings about the judge more directly to Curry Wednesday: When she said what she said, it was a relief. I probably could have kissed her.

    Whether Nelson will accept the option of the new trial was less clear. Asked by Curry if she wanted the opportunity to clear her record, Nelson said: Were weighing our options right now. Theres a part of me that doesn't really want to go through it again, but by the same token, I'll look at it and say, You know, if I've done it once, if that's the greater purpose, then I'll do it again. Nelson said that she has 30 days to decide whether to accept the option of a new trial.

    Several witnesses spoke on Nelson's behalf at the sentencing, and numerous supportive emails were presented. Her situation also galvanized the online community: A petition posted on change.org asking that she not receive any jail time received more than 140,000 signatures in 48 hours.
