According to authorities, Linton was driving a Mercedes-Benz at 90 miles per hour and ran a red light, which led to the collision. According to ABC News, her attorney claimed in court that she has “mental health issues,” using that as the reason for her erratic driving that wiped out an entire family and devastated at least two others. Investigators are reportedly still trying to determine why she was driving so carelessly on the day of the crash.
The judge denied the suspect’s bail request and remanded her to the custody of detention officials until her hearing on the matter. Linton was also injured in the accident. According to reports, she has a history littered with automobile collisions.
If found guilty of the charges against her, Linton could spend up to life in prison. Do you think this is a fair punishment for her alleged crimes?
