Out on a suspended sentence with conditions several years after the accident, White was remanded to fulfill his sentence shortly after, having been seen at a bar drinking alcohol against court orders. His lack of contrition, she said, has been difficult to process.

“I remember wishing it was just some old lady or old man who swerved and lost control, where that would not really be their fault,” she said. “The kid that bought the alcohol for (White) was clearly shaken and remorseful and changed for life. That changed him completely as opposed to William White, who I’m not sure is capable of that kind of insight and reflection.”
