She hasn’t served her full sentence yet in a deadly hit-and-run crash, but Amy Senser was released from prison on Thursday. It also doesn’t mean she’s free and going home. The wife of former Vikings player Joe Senser will be moved to either a jail or halfway house to begin a work release program.
In July 2012 a judge sentenced Amy Senser to nearly 41 months for the hit-and-run death of Anousone Phanthavong. Less than two years later, she’s headed to work release. On Thursday, Senser is expected to move from the Shakopee Women’s Prison to either a county jail or halfway house at night and a job during the day. She’s expected to be there for six months before starting parole in October.
