After killing a mother and her 6 year-old daughter in a hit and run accident Carl Broussard was sentenced to 10-years of probation and fined $10,000.
Broussard pleaded guilty in March 2017 to two second degree felony counts of failure to stop and render aid in the fatal 2015 accident that killed Ava Nichole Lewis, 25, and her daughter, LaMya Janise Newhouse. He hit the mother and daughter as walked across the street.
The crime is punishable by 2 to 20 years in prison yet Broussard managed to walk away with probation. This is a clear example of how the judicial system works in favor of white men.
Not only did he hit and kill a child and her mother with his car he drove away. Ava and LaMya are no longer here because of his careless behavior.
One must ask themselves why you hit someone with your car then turn yourself in the next day. Maybe beacuse you were intoxicated and had to sober up before turning yourself in, otherwise he would have never fled the scene in the first place.
And for his crime he received a slap on the hand. Talk about justice!
