Give the man that killed my mother the maximum sentence

Gerardo is in this country illegally (for the second time he was deported once before) and was driving without a license and ran over my mother and killed her with his dodge ram pick-up truck .She was in a crosswalk and had the right of way it was broad daylight May 2nd 2013 @ approximately 4: 10 p.m. on a clear sunny day and the police didn't arrest him until a week later because the police didn't even check his license .My mother suffered severe internal injuries and was on the operating table for two and a half hours before she died.This man ruined our lives , my brother and I lost our mother and my children lost their beloved nanny.My mother watched my three children so I could work  , my life has been turned upside down.I am completely heartbroken over this .My mother was only 48 years old and had a long life ahead of her . I struggle everyday with the pain as well as my children and my brother and other family members.We simply want justice and the DA Michael Ross of Suffolk County L.I N.Y is asking for 2 1/2 to 7 years .We want the maximum which is the seven years! This man Gerardo is trying to get the case dismissed .He is charged with forced instrument , unfortunately he will not be charged with vehicular homicide which doesn't make any sense to me since he was driving without a license in the state of New York and I thought that was a crime . Please sign our petition so that the Judge may consider this and give Gerardo 7  years. Please show your support for my mother Sharlene she deserves justice and so does our family thank you for your support!
