The Lake County Jury has spoken, Lora Hunt guilty of reckless homicide! A victory for the Anita Zaffke family and the People of Lake County, but nevertheless, the collision caused by Hunt resulting in the death of Anita, remains a tragedy for all. To be commended are the States Attorney for Lake County, Michael Waller and his chief of criminal prosecutions, Michael Mermel, for pursuing the homicide case and taking it to a successful conclusion. Next step is sentencing, which can fall in the range of probation to the maximum of 5 years in prison. We will keep you posted. A word of thanks to our Top Cat, Joe Rominski, who is an attorney and attended the trial, providing us with up to the minute developments via cell phone texts directly from the scene.
