note There must be something they aren't saying in the article.
How do they know she took the drain plug out with malicious intent? Plus the husband should have checked to make sure his drain plug was in in the first place. So if someone drains my boat and then I forget to check and put my plug back in and drown, it's their fault? Sounds like a weak case to me unless there was a history of issues or something else going on. Crazy though. I agree she must've had a crappy lawyer if they couldn't get her off of those charges, unless she really did do it and there is some sort of serious evidence against her.
