Delgado should not be charged with any crime....
i agree!:))

Delgado should not be charged with any crime. Because all three girls were drunk. The two passangers were adults. They knew the driver was intoxicated. No one forced them into the vehicle.

How sad to see our youth spend precious time in prison for not being responsible, not only has she ruined her life and given so much pain to her parents and family, but took the life of 2 other young ladies. All 3 young ladies were responsible for not being responsible enough to say I can't drive I had one two many drinks, and for not wearing seat belts. When will our youth learn that its ok to have fun but they must know when to say I can't drive I need someone else to take us home.
