Lora Hunt will spend her nights in jail for the next year and half for killing a woman she struck with her car while doing her nails.
The loved ones who asked the court for mercy on Thursday said the Morris, Ill., woman will be punishing herself for a lot longer.
“Every day she relives that day. She cries sometimes two, three or four times a day,” said her husband of 33 years, Mark, who described for the judge how his once-joyful wife has been depressed and at times suicidal since the May 2, 2009, crash near Lake Zurich that killed Anita Zaffke, 56.
Whatever the toll on Hunt, however, Zaffke’s family testified that it pales in comparison to what she took from them.
