Man gets 15 years in DUI accident that killed mother, son

A speeding, unlicensed driver who crashed into another car on the Northwest Side, killing a mother and her teenage son and injuring three other children, was sentenced Monday to 15 years in prison.
Richard Strum, 37, read a brief apology to the families devastated by the 2011 deaths of Claudia Delia, 35, and her 16-year-old son.
Also injured in the crash were Delia's stepson, Zack Marvin, a high school sophomore whose vision and hearing were permanently damaged on the left side of his head and Delia's son Hauk Marvin, then 3, who broke a leg. A family friend, Chris Diaz, then 16, suffered a fractured pelvis. The group had been headed for an end-of-summer camping trip in Wisconsin.
Strum, a Chicago resident, had not had a valid license since 2003, but continued to drive and rack up tickets.
Prosecutors argued that Strum was rushing to pick up his girlfriend on Aug. 9, 2011, when his Ford Mustang, southbound on Austin Avenue, slammed into Delia's Honda Civic as it pulled out from Sunnyside Avenue.
A urine test found cannabis in Strum's system, but jurors at the Leighton Criminal Court Building found him not guilty in May on counts that he was impaired while driving. His attorney argued that the amount of cannabis detected was minuscule and could have come from secondhand smoke.
Jurors, though, convicted him on multiple counts of aggravated DUI and reckless homicide.

Hmmm, let's start from the beginning....

"His conscious must be killing the guy"

If he has a consciousions maybe, but we'll never know.

"he seems sorry for what he caused"

Just like anyone who gets caught with their hand in the cookie jar.

"god is good my friend"

Yes, God IS good.

"keep your head up you did not meant what happened"

PUUULLLEEEZZZEEE, no one EVER means for bad things to happen TO THEM, they generally don't care about OTHERS.

Did ya miss the part where it said, "had not had a valid license since 2003, but continued to drive and rack up tickets"????

...and btw, he should hang his head LOW, in SHAME.

"pray for gods forgiveness forget what anyone has to say redemption is the way."

Hmmm, this is mainly correct, but you forgot one litle eensy-weensy word....


For w/o REPENTANCE, there is no FORGIVENESS.

I'm done ranting, thank you for your attention. Inform others to read this comment.

Guy wasn't drunk, people. Pay attention. He was charged with DUI of cannabis, NOT alcohol, and he was acquitted of being impaired.
