Emotions ran high at the Douglas County Courthouse this morning after a woman was sentenced to probation in connection with a deadly road rage incident last June.
A judge sentenced 57 year old Rhonda Boisseau to a year probation and revoked her drivers license for 30 days. Witnesses say Boisseau used her car to chase down a motorcycle rider in what appeared to be a display of road rage. They say she confronted a group of bikers in a parking lot at 77th and Dodge and began driving toward 24 year old Andrew Torrice.
Investigators say moments later Torrice's Suzuki ran a red light at 72nd and Cass and slammed into another motorcycle that was southbound on 72nd Street.
Torrice, 34 year old Adam Kammann and his passenger, 37 year old Christine Zadina, were all killed in the crash. She also had her drivers license revoked for 30 days and ordered to take anger management classes. The sentence follows a plea deal with prosecutors. Boisseau pleaded no contest to misdemeanor willful reckless driving. In exchange, prosecutors dropped a charge of providing false information.
In addition to probation Boisseau was ordered to take anger management and empathy classes and undergo a mental health evaluation. If Boisseau violates her probation she could face 90 days in jail.
Outside the courtroom Kristine Torrice held a picture of her son and said "our whole goal now is to make sure she never forgets who he is." Torrice was killed nearly three weeks before his daughter's fifth birthday.
