Hearing Set on Amy Senser's Motion for a New Trial
A hearing has now been set on Amy Senser's motion to set aside the unanimous jury verdicts against her and to be granted either an acquittal or a new trial.
Judge Dan Mabley is set to hear the motion May 31 at the Hennepin County Government Center, according to court records. Prosecutors are expected to file a response before then.
Earlier this month, a jury convicted Senser of two felony counts of criminal vehicular homicide in the death of Anousone Phanthavong, a Minneapolis chef.
Senser admitted she hit Phanthavong with her Mercedes SUV on a darkened interstate off-ramp in Minneapolis but maintained she did not know at the time that she hit a person.
Her attorney has promised an appeal.
Senser's sentencing is still set for July 9. Minnesota sentencing guidelines recommend a four year prison sentence.
