The woman who struck and killed a 15-year-old cheerleader on Folsom-Auburn Boulevard in Granite Bay last June was recently found guilty of vehicular manslaughter.
The 15-year-old girl was a cheerleader from Granite Bay, CA, a suburb of Sacramento. On the day of the accident, she and several of her friends were walking from a fast food restaurant when she remembered that she had left her phone at the restaurant. As she was crossing the street to return, she was struck by 52-year-old Anna Berset, who then fled the scene. Parker was found by her friend, lying on the side of the road.
According to Sacto 9-1-1, Berset called California Highway Patrol the night of the incident:
A California Highway Patrol officer had testified during Berset’s preliminary hearing that Berset called June 14 to report she had hit something on Auburn Folsom Road the previous night, but that it might have been a trash can or deer or perhaps a rock thrown at her by kids.
Berset was found guilty of hit and run driving causing death and vehicular manslaughter without gross negligence. Incidentally, Berset’s son spent four years in prison for a fatal hit and run car accident on the same road in 1999.

Don’t Let Your Statute Of Limitations Run Out

Each year at our Law Office, people call me to ask me for help that have legitimate cases, only to find their statute of limitations has run out. It is one of the most difficult things for me to tell them I can’t help because they waited too long.
