Drunk Driver's Sentence Includes Study of Book of Job

The Rock HIll (SC) Herald reported yesterday that a respected state trial court judge has sentenced a woman who pleaded guilty to drunk driving to 8 years in jail, 5 years probation and substance abuse counseling. In addition Judge Michael Nettles is requiring her to read the Biblical book of Job and write a summary of it.  Defendant Cassandra Tolley's attorney says that Tolley is "thankful for the assignment" and has already started working on it. Tolley, a long-time victim of abuse who then turned to alcohol, is remorseful for the serious injuries she caused to two people in the car crash that resulted from her driving with a blood alcohol level 4 times the legal limit.
