Her life is permanently changed, but she really wants an apology

Justice will be served when defendant admits guilt

The first sentence in the article tells a lot:

Laura Fralin might have recently received a large insurance settlement, but the University of Georgia graduate won’t be satisfied until the man who nearly killed her two years ago owns up.

The injured lady in this case was crossing the street when she was hit by a driver who fled the scene. Witnesses boxed the driver in and he was caught. He was not charged with felony hit and run, but misdemeanor traffic violations. He claimed his medication affected him at the time of the article and is trying to enter a “no-contest” plea on the charges.

A no contest plea neither admits nor denies guilt, but accepts the charges.

Although the injured lady does not want the defendant to be able to plead no contest and she is not advocating for jail time, she really wants an apology. “I will feel like justice has been served is if Mr. Hale owns up to what he did wrong.”
