‘Justice for John’ is served

Dear Editor:

On Aug. 1, 2012, in Maricopa County Court, Arizona, a sentence of 22 years with no chance of parole for good behavior was handed down to the defendant who struck and killed John Larson out on his daily morning walk on March 14, 2011.

The defendant changed his plea on June 27, 2012 from not guility, to guility as charged.

After 16 long, painful months, with 30 hearings and three delays, our mission was accomplished. Now at last, our time to grieve and heal, has come.

The family of John Larson
