In the case of my husband, Catalino Sánchez, the person that hit and killed him, Danise McFadden, was sentenced to 90 days in jail, which she was supposed to start serving Aug. 27. The decision was made by Judge Ricardo Córdova. Then Judge Donald Shaver gave her two more weeks to argue. So the next court date will be Monday, when McFadden will appear in court to appeal this decision.
I am feeling very disheartened by our judicial system. This woman killed my husband. My children have no father. She is appealing a 90-day sentence? What is happening? This has been so hard on my family and will continue to affect us for the rest of our lives. You have to put yourself in our position.
