Thankfully, Marco Serna's time as the DA is coming to an end.

I understand the judge's unhappiness with the plea deal because the more serious charges are probably provable. However, this deal gave her open sentencing on a charge that carries up to 6 years in prison. Surely, she isn't planning to give more than a 6 year sentence in an accidental death case. No matter how stupid the accident/driver this is still accidental death.

If the more serious charges are provable, let a jury decide. Driving recklessly or carelessly and killing someone is an affront to society and thus society has the obligation to decide, even if the DA's office is lazy.
