...it's Misdemeanor death by vehicle only. I don't think she meant to kill the guy. However, she obviously meant to leave the scene and is charged with FELONY hit and run because of that intention. Not a light charge to deal with by any means, as it shouldn't be.
She left for a reason and it wasn't because she thought she hit an animal.
She's the one that will carry the load on her shoulders. She knows what really happened and her conscience is apparent. Her sentence will never make a difference with that.
