GUILTY

Chat - - Chat -

Af­ter eight hours, the jury found Ronald Gasser, 56, not guilty of mur­der, but guilty of the lesser charge of manslaugh­ter. On 15 March this year, Judge Ellen Shirer Kovach sen­tenced him to 30 years in prison.

‘Let this be a cau­tion­ary tale for all driv­ers,’ she said.

Mcknight’s sis­ter Jo­hanna and mother Jen­nifer wept as the sen­tence was de­clared.

‘To you, it might have seemed like an in­signif­i­cant life to take, but it wasn’t,’ said Jen­nifer.

Mean­while, this March, Gasser’s lawyers filed pa­per­work to ap­peal the con­vic­tion and to re­quest a re­duc­tion in Gasser’s sen­tence.
