    Driver gets 13 years in firefighter's death

    (Chicago-AP) -- An Indiana motorist has been sentenced to 13
    years in prison for running down a Chicago fire lieutenant on duty
    at a highway accident scene almost two years ago.
    Twenty-seven-year-old Carlando Hurt of Hammond was convicted of
    reckless homicide in May in connection with the December 2000
    accident that fatally injured Scott Gillen.
    The 13-year sentence was just shy of the maximum sentence of 14
    years.
    Judge Stanley Sacks says Hurt's past traffic violations
    influenced the decision.
    Gillen was hit by the speeding car while responding to an
    accident on the Bishop Ford Freeway.

        May Lt. Scott Gillen CFD rest in eternal peace. Hopefully the MUTT who committed this crime will have enough time to realize what he has done.

          I will definately give that an AMEN! It is about time that the justice system, took a hard look at people killing fire fighters and handed down appropriate sentences.
