The mother of Joseph Marino, a 15-year old killed in a drunk driving crash, is calling the punishment appalling. A Mattituck woman will spend six months in jail for the crime as part of a controversial plea deal.
Newsday reports the woman's sobbing also brought the victim's grieving mother to tears.
Goss admitted she had been drinking and using narcotic medication before her SUV struck the teenager as he rode his bike.
She served about three months in jail after pleading guilty to vehicular manslaughter, DWI and endangering the welfare of a child.
Marino's parents were outraged by the plea agreement and sued Goss. She agreed to pay them $300 a month for 20 years.
