A college student was given probation and community service for killing three pedestrians.

The Atlanta teen, Zoe Reardon pleaded guilty in the deaths of three pedestrians in Georgia.

The 19-year-old student of Southern Methodist University in Dallas was given three years of probation, 240 hours of community service, a safe driver training course, and $4,000 in fines for hitting and killing twenty-eight-year-old Kaitlin Hunt, 3-month-old Riley Hunt, and 61-year-old family friend Kathy Deming with her jeep.

Police say the charges included second-degree vehicular homicide and distracted driving and that speeding and intoxication was not a factor.

Reardon made an appearance in court Monday and apologized.

According to Refinery29, Cherokee County State Court Judge Alan Jordan told Reardon, “You’ve got a lifetime ahead of you. I expect this is something you’re going to have a hard time dealing with the rest of your life.”
