Charges against Cynthia Sommers dropped

This has just been announced so I can't find much about it online.I remember watching it on Court Tv where she was charged with poisoning her husband leading to his death.She was found guilty but granted a new trial but prosecutors have just dropped charges due to lack of arsenic in the body of her deceased husband.I thought all along that she was innocent becasue they never proved she killed her husband.

She killed her husband so that she could get new boobs, with the insurance money.

...and nowhere else. Seriously, we need a separate San Diego subthread so all the SDers here can hang out together and delude themselves into thinking that San Diego actually matters or something.

Well that was completely rude. Oh wait, you're from NY. Never mind.

Just because this didn't happen in THE New York City, doesn't mean it can't be a topic of discussion.

I just saw video of her walking out of Jail and she's quite attractive. So obviously my response to this news is....Justice is served.

Are her kids from a previous marriage? If that is the case, I worked with her ex mother-in-law. The grandmother of her kids. I worked for a trucking company for a few months as a temp, doing admin work and this woman was truck driver. The court case was taking place in early 07 if its the same one Im thinking of

She must have opted to not go with the makeup artist and wardrobe specialist that they offer all inmates for their court cases. How good would any woman look handcuffed coming out of prison in a baggy sweatshirt.

Justifiable homicide.

This story isn't that local. I'd been following it a bit (it's been on national news programs), and from what I've heard, it seems that the right decision was made here.

Some people don't pay attention to what's happening in the rest of the world/country.

I followed this case on Courtv also.
I always thought they were prosecuting her because of her 'unethical' behavior instead of the evidence.
She did lead a colorful life soon after he died... but some people do some strange things after a loved one dies so I won't pass too much judgment.

Maybe you should wait until she gets those new boobies, you know, so that you don't end up poisoned.

That picture of her above is fine.

I've seen some chicks look A LOT worse than that after a trial.

I'd still hit it. In the butt.

Classy.
Will you be using the approach recommended above?
