It’s prison for man who drove with wife on hood

Thursday, May 12, 2011

image The husband who drove more than 25 miles from Manteca to Pleasanton at speeds up to 100 mph with his wife clinging for her life on the hood of their minivan back in February was sentenced Wednesday to five years in prison after pleading guilty to attempted murder.

Add: The Stockton Record says that construction worker Christopher Michael Carroll, 36, sat expressionless as his wife, who survived by clutching a mirror and windshield wiper, had the last word before sentencing:

Rebecca Carroll's hands shook with nerves as she stood in court, reading from handwritten notes. At times she cried through her words.

"I shouldn't have needed anybody to protect me from my own husband," she said. "I thought I was going to die that night at the hands of Christopher Carroll."


"He laughed and smiled and turned up the music and danced while he drove," she said. "He enjoyed it."
