ADA—Jasmine Cotter’s sentence was deferred yesterday after pleading no contest to first degree manslaughter.
Cotter, who also turned 19 yesterday, was accused of running over and killing her boyfriend, Damian Ruston in October 2010.
Instead of facing four years to life in prison and a felony charge, Cotter was set free on March 28 with her sentence deferred until March 28, 2021.
Damian Ruston’s father, Anthony Ruston, who previously forgave Cotter and requested that she be released, spoke in her defense at the sentencing.
After she was arrested, Cotter allegedly said she deliberately ran over Ruston. At her sentencing, she and Anthony Ruston called Damian Ruston’s death a tragic accident.
“I loved Damian with all my heart and I would never do anything to hurt him. There’s not a second that goes by that I don’t think about him,” Cotter said. “I would never do this on purpose.”
The terms of Cotter’s deferred sentence are as follows:
“What the deferred sentence means is that (Cotter) will not be sentenced to a penitentiary so long as she completes the terms and conditions of that deferred sentence,” Tillison said.
The conditions include 500 hours of community service, which will require Cotter to speak at 24 victim impact panels and at least two of the panels must be in Pontotoc County. Cotter must also pay various fees for court costs, jail and victim compensation fees.
The Ruston family must truly be touched the spirit of God’s forgiveness, because we can’t think of one good reason that they would testify on this girl’s behalf otherwise. Bet this lil heffa violates her terms and ends up in prison anyway. Karma is a muthafu*ka…
