Amy Senser is scheduled to leave prison this week to enter a work release facility. Starting this Thursday, the wife of former Minnesota Vikings player Joe Senser will be transferred from the Shakopee prison to a jail or halfway house.
Star Tribune columnist C.J. recently interviewed attorney Ron Meshbesher about the Amy Senser case. When asked how he would have defended Senser, Meshbesher responded by saying it was a tough case because she left the scene of the fatal accident. Anousone Phanthavong, 38, was killed while refilling his gas tank on an Interstate 94 exit ramp in Minneapolis. Senser was convicted of criminal vehicular homicide in the 2011.
State officials say Amy Senser, who’s serving time for a fatal hit and run, will be released nearly six months early from prison. The Department of Corrections says Senser applied for a transfer to a jail or halfway house for work release, and it was approved. Senser is the wife of former Minnesota Vikings player Joe Senser. She was convicted of criminal vehicular homicide in the 2011 death of 38-year-old Anousone Phanthavong.
