Quality of life must be given fuller measure in justice for victims

RE “BREAKING his silence” (Page A1, Jan. 6): I wouldn’t want to beat up too much on William Senne, who is facing a new vehicular homicide charge since state Trooper Ellen Engelhardt’s death, after having done time in prison for injuring her in 2003 when he was 18. I don’t think a jury would want to either; Senne’s counsel could make prosecutors look pretty bad.

Still, I can’t blame prosecutors for feeling that justice has not quite been done. It was never done in the first place.
