Driver who dragged pedestrian three miles gets 5 to 6 years

Suffolk Superior Court Judge Peter Krupp today sentenced Xiao Ying Zhou, 47, of Sandwich to 5 to 6 years in state prison after she admitted she hit a woman on Kneeland Street, then kept driving with the woman caught on the bottom of her SUV until she got to Columbia Road on I-93 south, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

Prosecutors had asked for 10 to 12 years on the charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious bodily injury.

Her victim suffered permanent injuries and disabilities and required skin grafts across much of her body.

She gives massages as her profession, though the profession is older than that. Allegedly.

In the end, that activity should have no bearing on this case.
