They held a protest when they found out that Melgoza could still go to her graduation event even though she was facing charges. Melgoza was able to get her diploma, but she was not allowed to attend the event.

Melgoza’s lawyer, Kevin Sullivan, said that his client felt bad about what happened and wished to warn people about the dangers of driving drunk. Judge Tim Cusack said that drunk drivers needed to get harsh punishments to stop them from getting into more crashes. Cusack said that the system is built on punishment and rehabilitation, and that he had to find a balance between the two.

Stephanie Melgoza’s case shows the dangers of drunk driving

The accident has shown how dangerous it is to drive while drunk and how people who do this need to be punished more harshly. The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention say that one person dies every 50 minutes in the United States because of a drunk driver.

It’s important to hold drunk drivers responsible for what they do, but it’s also important to get the word out about how dangerous this behaviour is. Many groups, like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), are trying to teach people about the dangers of drunk driving and push for stricter laws and punishments to stop more accidents.

In the case of Stephanie Melgoza, her actions led to the deaths of two people and left their families in a terrible state. Even though her sentence seems harsh, it is important to show that driving drunk is a serious crime with serious consequences. People need to be held responsible for their acts if we want to stop more tragedies caused by drunk driving.
