Remember Elizabeth Shelton? The daughter of the Harris County judge who was drunk, rear ended a box truck and ended up killing her boyfriend who was her passenger? I can’t remember her ever showing remorse that her boyfriend was killed. She and her father blamed the truck driver for the accident, trying to distract the jury from the fact that she was 20 (too young to be legally drinking alcohol) and three times the legal limit. In other words, the girl was drunk!!!! She was given basically a slap on the wrist. Again she amazes us all with her poor sense of judgment! She is suing the box truck driver she hit while she was drunk!

Shelton, her family and the family of the boyfriend who was killed are suing for $20,000 for the destruction of the Lexus SUV she was driving and an undetermined amount for mental anguish, pain and suffering.

So she is arguing that while she was driving drunk, she rear ended a box truck, killed her boyfriend, and she’s suffering mental anguish! She must still be in denial or trying to convince the public it wasn’t her fault even though she was drunk. Or her insurance won’t pay off or got canceled because she was drunk and she wants a new Lexus SUV. I didn’t want to lump her in with her father’s position as a judge. Even judges can have bad apples. Yet, according to the article, her family, and the family of the dead man are also suing the box truck driver. So maybe she isn’t the only one with a lapse in reasoning.
