I have to agree with you on this El. There are better ways to punish her with out humiliating her. Impound her car and suspend her license for 6 months. Make her do community service for the school washing school buses or crossing guard duty. The judge should be able to come up with a more intelligent way to teach her a lesson that does not involve degrading and embarrassing her.
All that aside...that made me laugh lol what goes through some people's minds? I had to drive on the sidewalk your honor, there was a school bus and a bunch of kids blocking the road and I didn't want to hit them ahaha that is pretty amazing!
