Zoe Reardon

CANTON, Ga. (AP) -- An Atlanta teen has pleaded guilty in the 2017 deaths of three pedestrians in Georgia, where two of them were trying to escape Hurricane Irma in Florida.

News outlets reported 19-year-old Zoe Reardon was placed on probation for three years and ordered to complete 240 hours of community service after the crash in Woodstock, northwest of Atlanta.

Twenty-eight-year-old Kaitlin Hunt, 3-month-old Riley Hunt of Port St. Lucie, Florida, and 61-year-old family friend Kathy Deming died after they were hit by Reardon's Jeep.

Riley Hunt died the night of the Sept. 9, 2017, crash. The adults died several days later in a hospital.

Reardon apologized in court Monday. She's a student at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Judge Alan Jordan is allowing her to check with her probation officer from Texas.

the headlines make it sound like she is a little girl. SHE IS A WOMAN at 19 years old.

You rubes are SO EASY to get cranked up without ANY details about a story. And everyone wonders why the internet can be so harmful...

ARE YOU EFFEN KIDDING ME??????? No jail time?? Just goes to prove we have a legal system but not a justice system. Sickening.

Man, our society is getting easier and easier to commit crimes in. I can murder 3 people and not do a day in jail? I guess the judge figured she has to live with that disgustingly strange face, and that was punishment enough.

best to know the story before casting stones

What a joke... what more is there to the story? she said she had her eyes on the road and still didn't see them? something doesn't make sense.

[thumbup][thumbup][thumbup][thumbup] That tool Justin is clueless. Maybe it was his girlfriend, and he knows exactly why she did what she did. Doesn't matter. "Knowing the story" is pointless. I don't care if she had medically documented, incapacitating seizures...( which would preclude her from driving fyi), she is guilty, and should be punished.

lemme - "Knowing the story is pointless." Absolutely brilliant comment.........good grief.

And just exactly why do you support criminals. Your fake name obviously does not follow your beliefs.

what's your problem? You miss your priest?

I realize this is a cut and paste from the AP, but how about a little context next time? You really should address each topic in the title with context. Hence, why is no jail time following three deaths in an auto accident news?

MyOwnMind

who are you to tell people what to do? throw yourself in front of her next time she drives by.
