    Default Mom given bill to clean street after son killed by illegal immigrant driving drunk

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1622301.html

    GREENVILLE, SC A grieving mother told a South Carolina court she was slapped with several bills, including one to clean the street after her son was killed by a drunken driver last year.

    Loretta Robinson spoke on June 19 of the emotional and financial toll her son Justin Walker's death had on her as the driver Anna Gonzales, who is an illegal immigrant, pleaded guilty in the case.

    Robinson told the judge she has been unable to work due to the emotional impact of her son's death, and can't pay the bills she keeps receiving from the accident even though her son was not at fault, WYFF reports.

    "I had to pay to have the vehicle towed," she said according to WYFF. "I had to pay for the vehicle removed and to clean up the street from Justin's blood on the ground."

    Robinson said the $50 bill to clean the street stung the most.

    "First of all, having to open the mail and look at the charge to the deceased, Justin Darryl Walker -- the deceased! It's just a hard thing to deal with in the context of your child," she said according to WYFF.

    Robinson says she doesn't expect to get any money from Gonzales. The state's victim assistance fund has provided some money, but it primarily covers funeral, medical and counseling expenses.

    Gonzales, an illegal immigrant who didn't have a South Carolina driver's license, was sentenced to 17 years in prison.

    That is crazy, I never heard of receiving a bill like that, especially when the boy was killed by a drunk driver.

    Geez...is this normal procedure in these cases? I've never heard of this happening before, but I can't believe this happens as a matter of policy, right?!

    I wonder if these bills are normally paid by the person at fault and they screwed up with the paperwork?

    Either way, this shouldn't happen. That's just awful.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    South Carolina is kind of a screwy state in the south. They're kina like the redheaded stepchild. Butt of a lot of jokes.

    This is really sad though. I feel for the mother.

    I'd tell them to shove those bills up their rears and dare them to take me to court to collect it.

    Idiot bureaucrats. There's too much manure in the garden of their mind.
