The Hanna McKinney case

Transworld News reporting the following:

A confession was made by Sgt. Damon D. Shell admitting to taking McKinney to have a drink followed by a “sexual encounter” followed by his decision to drive into her with a 10,000 pound Humvee. He was acquitted of involuntary manslaughter and is only spending 13 months in prison; his conviction was drunk driving and voluntary sodomy. He will be able to remain on active duty in the US Army.

According to the transcript received by The Washington Post, Shell could only make this statement. "Nothing I could say or do would make up for the fact that the things that happened that night killed her. What do you say? Sorry? That means nothing. There is nothing I can say. It would take me a long time to figure out what to say."
