Woman faces 20 years in hit and run that killed little girl

A Suffolk County grand jury yesterday indicted Olivia Mora, 36, for manslaughter for the death of Briana Rosales, 7, on a Dorchester sidewalk last November.

Mora faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted on the charges of manslaughter by motor vehicle, motor vehicle homicide while operating under the influence, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, operating under the influence causing serious bodily injury and leaving the scene of an accident causing personal injury, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office says.

The victims were walking on Olney Street when they were struck by Mora’s Chevrolet Tahoe. Evidence suggests the sport-utility vehicle was going over the speed limit when it struck a parked car, jumped the curb, hit a fire hydrant, then collided with the victims. Rosales was mortally injured and succumbed to her injuries at Boston Medical Center. Her mother, 26 and a resident of Dorchester, suffered life-threatening injuries but survived.

The DA's office says Mora is a Dorchester resident, although she was carrying a California license and driving a car registered in New Hampshire when arrested.

Innocent, etc.

The Nationalist Socialist

The Nationalist Socialist Workers Party was leftist but not "liberal" in the classical sense of the word. There was a big ideological battle before the shooting one between the German national socialists, the Italian fascists and the Soviet communists over who had the 'real' implementation of Marx's economic and political theories. Something which is often glossed over and oversimplified in history books. They were evil all kissing cousins.

How did the comments morph

into nazis and commies? This is a story about a scumbag female drunk driver of dubious identity murdering a little girl with her car, not about an alleged white guy on A st. with an alleged swastika tattoo.

train(wreck) of thought

the first comment was referencing the fact that the woman in question had tattoos and equated having tattoos with being "liberal" and at the same time "one of those god hates America westboro baptist Church protestor type hags" which would seem to me to be exclusive of the first characterization. Swirly responded with the idea that having a tattoo doesn't mean being "liberal" which then resulted in the nazi-commie digression.

Personally, I think the first poster probably just has a hard time making time with the ladies.
