Avon and Somerset Police have issued the following statement after Leanne Burnell from Taunton had her sentence increased from 18 months to three and a half years in prison for causing the death by dangerous driving of 13-year-old cyclist Amy Hofmeister.
We are pleased with the outcome of this appeal.
We hope the sentencing of Jones and Burnell brings some comfort to Amy's family.
13-year-old Amy's death was totally unnecessary. She was doing everything right wearing reflective clothing, a helmet and cycling on a proper cycle path...
We will not tolerate those road users who put all our lives at risk through illegal or dangerous driving and will always seek to take action against those who do
Our thoughts are with Amy's family who are campaigning bravely to promote road safety in the hope that her death will not be in vain.
