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.

And glad I didn't put any actual money down on "six month suspended sentence", which is where I sort of assumed this was heading.

If the stories in the Cape papers about the perp are accurate, she's not one I'd expect to be offered a suspension.

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.
