MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Months after a Minnesota Court of Appeals denied Amy Senser’s appeal on her guilty verdict in the 2011 death of Anousone Panthavong, the Minnesota Supreme Court has rejected her appeal as well.
With the court’s denial to hear her appeal, Senser will now remain in prison for at least another 13 months at the earliest.
Senser was found guilty of criminal vehicular homicide, though her defense attorney argued she never knew she hit Panthavong, who was filling his car with gas on a darkened exit ramp on Interstate 94 in August 2011.
Senser was sentenced to a 41-month prison sentence; she’s served about 13 months so far.
She is scheduled for supervised release in October 2014.
Panthavong was a chef at True Thai restaurant.
