Woman gets three years probation for killing pedestrian then hiding evidence

Yet more evidence that we need to take more seriously the problem of drivers who recklessly kill and then get off nearly scot-free:
A guilty plea was entered Monday morning in St. Louis Circuit Court by the teenage woman who was driving a car on McCausland that struck and killed an elderly woman last December before driving away from the accident scene and then allegedly trying to hide the vehicle.

Jene Inman, 19, of Webster Groves is charged with two felonies in the case, leaving the scene of an accident as well as tampering with evidence, which was filed against her last January after a lengthy investigation by St. Louis Police. . . .

Inman was sentenced to three years probation. She plead guilty to both charges in the case. Her brother has a December 12, 2005 court date pending.
