Man, this family’s dinners have got to be AWKWARD.
Back in February of 2018, a 29-year-old woman named Fatheha Abedin was driving in Leicester, in the U.K., and was using her phone. She accidentally HIT someone in a crosswalk . . . and then sped away from the scene.
She didn’t realize it at the time, but the person she hit was her 61-year-old FATHER-IN-LAW.
He was seriously injured . . . and instead of coming clean, Fatheha tried to cover it up by deleting texts, coming up with alibis, and eventually using excuses like she had an asthma attack or temporary amnesia.
She was in court on Wednesday and her family was there . . . including her father-in-law, who even wrote a letter supporting her and forgiving her.
The judge sentenced her to 18 months in prison.
Listen to Gello sing the Bad News Blues about her here!
(Here’s a picture of her leaving court.)
