A Georgia Teen Still Wants to Go on a Cruise After Facing Felony Charges

The attorney representing a 17-year-old girl, who is facing felony-level vehicular homicide charges, asked the judge in her case if the Georgia teen could keep her passport to go on a cruise only a month after she was behind the wheel in a deadly crash that killed her friend.

Prosecutors say the teen may have been using Snapchat while she drove 106 mph in a 65 mph zone when her Mini Cooper flipped, crashing into a tree and killing her friend, 18-year-old Makayla Penn, according to Atlanta’s Channel 2 Action News.

Makayla died, and the teen driver was transported to the hospital. Now, Channel 2 reports, the teen is facing first-degree vehicular homicide charges, as well as charges of reckless driving and speeding. She has been placed on a $31,000 bond and the judge ordered that she cannot drive or use Snapchat.
Penn’s family and the district attorney were not happy to learn on April 25 that the teen now wants to go on a cruise.

The teen’s attorney, Jackie Patterson, told Channel 2 Action News that her client’s request for her passport was not meant to be “insensitive.”
Nah, we thought the judge and the victim's parents would want my client to enjoy herself before she skips the country serves her punishment.

I think this lawyer should be thinking more about somehow getting her client out of prison before she's 30 than about some fucking cruise.

I am sure he advised her of her stupidity, but, being stupid, she insisted he ask.

I would like to think he felt this maneuver would put his client on the "wrong side" of the judge and potential jury pool. . . .

Okay by me if the cruise is to Somalia.

Or maybe she just figured it was worth a shot.

In any event, the response will cheer her deeply: No.

She must be ugly if she cannot get a proper man to support her.
