Drunk Driver Ordered to Give Book Report

Some Biblical punishment has been meted out in South Carolina.

From a story in the New York Daily News...

“Biblical punishment” may conjure images of hellfire and plague, but for a South Carolina woman, it’s been scaled back a bit. Cassandra Tolley, who received eight years in prison and five on probation for driving under the influence, has also been ordered to read the Old Testament book of Job and write a report on it. 

Tolley has struggled with alcohol as a result of a troubled and abusive past, but attended church and declared herself a Christian in court, according to the Rock Hill Herald. Her pastor, Rev. Daggett Duncan, testified on her behalf, and will care for two of her three children while she serves out her sentence (her third will go with the father).
