Heather Cook killed someone in his prime because she chose to drive drunk, text while driving and leave the scene of an accident (“Prosecutor opposes early release for ex-bishop Heather Cook who fatally struck Baltimore bicyclist,” Oct. 9). It was not the first time she was arrested for drunk driving. Her sentence should have been longer than seven years. She certainly does not deserve to leave prison any earlier, regardless of what she’s supposedly accomplished while incarcerated. Her repeated requests to have her sentence modified demonstrate a sense of entitlement. Thomas Palermo does not have the opportunity to appeal his death, and Heather Cook should show some remorse for her actions by finishing out her sentence.
