WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The woman charged with the hit-and-run death of a cyclist last week made her first court appearance this afternoon.

Police found Judith Nemeth’s damaged car Friday evening. She turned herself into Wilmington Police early Saturday morning.

Nemeth is charged with felony hit and run and misdemeanor death by motor vehicle. She was in court today accompanied by her mother.

Her attorney says this is Nemeth’s first offense and Nemeth wants to meet and speak with the victim’s family. Today, though, she had very little to say. Nemeth’s mother instead uttered the word “sorry.”

The family of victim Zachary Tyler did not want to go on camera.

The judge left Nemeth’s bond at $25,000, but he revoked her licence while the case continues.

    I’m disappointed. I’m angry, I’m hurt and I’m disillusioned – why? I can’t say. Because this isn’t about me or what the hell I think. It’s not about what you think either. It’s about what these families are going through. Both families. You all ought to be ashamed of yourselves – thinking you have all the answers from your ridiculous safety. You don’t know what any of this is like. You weren’t there. You weren’t in the heads of either of these kids. You didn’t experience it. If you can sit behind your computer screen and seriously say that this girl intended to kill a man that night you have a God complex and you need to get yourself in check. If you think anything that you have to say means anything in the face of what has happened here you have a God complex and you need to get yourself in check. Surrender yourself for two seconds to what it is to be human – to err – and come back down to join us on Earth. There are far more important things you could be doing than adding your asinine opinions to a situation full of a sort of pain you’ll never be able to define – because it isn’t yours. Go back to your own lives. Tuck yourselves in at night knowing your self-righteous assurance will keep you safe from ever being a part of such a catastrophic situation. And pray it keeps you sane when you find out that it’s not enough.
