TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (250)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of MyFoxBoston.com (via Diane Levin) (from Tuesday, December 22; link good at time of posting):
A North Shore man who became an activist for tougher drunken driving laws after his son was killed by a drunken driver has been sentenced to a year in jail after pleading to sufficient facts to driving while intoxicated.

Donald Ross received a 2½-year sentence on Monday in Salem District Court, with one year to serve and the remainder suspended for 2½ years, after reaching a deal with prosecutors. He pleaded to drunken driving, third offense, and failing to stay within marked lanes.

The Salem News reported that Ross expressed regret in court.
