Court is no laughing matter, and Michigan Judge Qiana Lillard would have no part of it when a defendant's family laughed during her sentencing.

Amanda Kosal was sentenced to spend three to 15 years in jail after pleading guilty to operating under the influence and causing death. Kosal was convicted of driving while intoxicated, killing 31-year-old Jerome Zirker and severely injuring his fianceé, 31-year-old Brittany Johnson.

One family member received a sentence of 93 days in the Wayne County Jail.

“I understand that you all are very upset because your loved one is going to prison but guess what, she’s going to prison for the choices that she made. These people are here grieving, saddened because a senseless act took away their loved one and you’re sitting here acting like it’s a joke? Not in courtroom 502, not today and not any other day.”
