Glenda Rumsey will be sentenced this coming Tuesday at 1:30 PM in the Board of Supervisor’s room at 130 W. Congress in downtown Tucson. Most of you know that she was driving with a blood alcohol content of .249 when she hit 14 year-old Jose Rincon, killing him and injuring his friend. Rincon and his friend were riding their bicycles far off the shoulder on Broadway Ave.
The Rincon family has made a crusade not of demonizing Rumsey but of highlighting the loss that can come from drunk driving. They have asked people to come to Ms. Rumsey’s sentencing.
I think BICAS employees should strongly consider attending, and I would personally favor closing BICAS for the hour or so the hearing will occur. But that’s the collective’s call.
