What a terrible accident. Condolences to the DiCocco family. She needs to be prosecuted and sent away. Her mother and father must be very proud of her.

so far this is justice...although it will never bring back a man's wife...

The DiCocco family lost an amazing wife, mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, and godmother on this day. Mrs. Carol impacted so many people and so many miss her everyday. My heart goes out to all of the family and friends of the DiCocco's. This will not bring this beautiful woman back to us however, the DiCocco's are one step closer to justice.

Is driving a car wile intoxicated and not hitting some one any different then firing a gun Into a crowd and not hitting any one. Both are premeditated both show that you don't care if you hurt or kill some one but for some reason a lot of people drive wile intoxicated and think it's no big deal. I know a guy with a blow & go and his first night out with it he is seen drinking. Are you F**king kidding me WTF is wrong with people. I have zero respect and ZERO tolerance for all you drunk F**KS that think it's ok to drink and drive. I hope you get caught and it costs you a lot of time and $$$$$$$$ that seems to be the only thing that motivates change not the possibility of mowing down a child.

What took them so long to indict her? She's a thief, a drug addict, a convicted criminal - and she took someone's life - 9 months ago. Her freedom must cause the victims family enormous pain.

Not t mention that she posted pictures of her car on Facebook and commented something like, thank God I'm still alive and walked away from this. God does give 2nd chances - BUT a mear 3 months later, she shoplifted yet again. If you are given a 2nd chance, why do you continue to commit crimes?

Her Father is deceased. He would be so ashamed. As for her Mom the Apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Her Mom has an extensive record and drug habit. The police in Bel Air used to come right to her house if they were looking for runaways and such.

AAAHHH her mug shot looks like she's sorry. Sorry she got caught. Sorry that now she has to pay for her crimes. Sorry that she loses her freedom. Not sorry for all the grief she caused another family. Not sorry she screwed up her young childrens lives.Not sorry that she steals what she wants.

What a piece of trash! She should rot in jail for the rest of her crappy life. There should be no second chances when trash like her kill someone. I hope you burn in hell!

Shame her Mom can't share a cell with her and some of the blame for Nicoles bad behavior. Since she taught her all she knows. Course there is a point where an adult should say. I had a screwed up example of a parent and I messed up and then change thier behaviors.

The irony in your post amazing, "nobody's business".

How do you know this isn't my real name? Wonderful??? Whatever. I've known Nicole and her family since Nicole was in second grade. So I know what I'm talking about. I've seen Nancys court record. I've seen things in her home that she shouldn't have. I've seen the house look nasty etc...Speaking of wonderful, I understand the woman who was killed was on the way to drop off a pie she had baked for someone. Now that's wonderful. Nicole was allowed to smoke and drink in her home as a teenager and Nancy wonders why she couldn't control her?
hottmama August 23, 2012 at 02:28 PM
