Woman gets extra long sentence after laughing about man she killed

Associated Press

TUCSON- A woman got a longer jail sentence after a judge heard a

recorded jail conversation during which she made light of the bicyclist

she had killed.

Melissa Arrington, 27, was convicted two months ago of negligent

homicide and two counts of aggravated DUI in connection with the

December 2006 death of Paul L'Ecuyer.

She could have gotten as few as four years behind bars, but Pima County

Superior Court Judge Michael Cruikshank sentenced her on Tuesday to 10

½ years, one year shy of the maximum.

Cruikshank said he found a telephone conversation between Arrington and

an unknown male friend a week after L'Ecuyer was killed "breathtaking

in its inhumanity."

During the conversation, the man told Arrington that an acquaintance of

theirs believed she should get a medal and a parade because she had

"taken out" what he said was a "tree hugger, a bicyclist, a Frenchman

and a gay guy all in one shot."

Arrington laughed, and when the man said he knew it was a terrible thing to say, she responded, "No, it's not."

Cruikshank said instead of laughing, Arrington should have been rendered silent by such shocking and disgusting sentiments.

Assistant Pima County Public Defender Michael Rosenbluth told the judge

his client has never been "cold, callous or flippant" about L'Ecuyer's

death and has always felt remorseful for her actions.

Arrington said words can't begin to express how she feels about what

she's done, and that once she's out of prison, she hopes to share her

story with Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

L'Ecuyer, 45, was riding his bike the night of Dec. 1, 2006 when

Arrington swerved off the road, hit him and then continued for 800 feet

before stopping, according to Deputy Pima County Attorney Jonathan

Mosher.

Arrington blood-alcohol content was .156 percent, nearly double

Arizona's .08 legal limit. She also had been driving on a suspended

license for a prior DUI.

Hooray for that judge. It's a shame he didn't give her the full 12 years, though.
