I was watching the murder channel late last night and there was a 20/20 special about this 16 year old girl who barely survived a car crash that killed a pregnant mother and her son in the other car.

She had no memory of the crash or of the whole day leading up to it, doctors and psychiatrists agree that she is not faking the amnesia.

However, text messages from right before showed that she had caused the crash intentionally as an attempt at suicide. The family of the deceased asked her to apologize but she refused to apologize for something she doesn't remember doing.

She was convicted of two counts of deliberate homicide and sentenced to up to 30 years in prison.


Do you agree with that decision?
Should people be sent to prison for crimes they don't remember committing?

I'm not asking if they should have to face responsibility for their actions, I'm specifically asking about prison as the proper response.
