ROCHESTER, Ind. (Network Indiana): A woman who hit and killed three kids at a bus stop in Fulton County back in 2018, prompting a revamp of state school bus safety laws, could be released from jail as early as this year.

Alyssa Shepherd was sentenced to four years in prison when she was convicted of hitting Alivia Stahl and twin boys Mason and Xzavier Ingle while they were getting on the bus to school along a busy state road in Rochester three years ago.

Now the Department of Corrections has informed prosecutors that Shepherd could be released as soon as December of this year, thanks to her taking a bible study course that helps shave time off an inmate’s sentence. She could also get an additional 60-90 days cut from her sentence under a “community transition” program.

Her original release date was set for September 22nd, 2022.

Fulton County has officially gone STUPID October 22, 2021 at 9:34 am

This woman is a POS. She already tried getting out of all the charges as if she wasn’t responsible for killing 3 kids, and blamed everything as if it was fine for her to pass a stopped school bus with its flashing lights on.

And killing 3 kids only got her 4 years…and now, because she took a bible study she can get another year off? ….These days, That lack of punishment really makes sense for killing 3 kids….

I bet the people Fulton County can’t wait for this moron to be back on the road…. Perhaps she can get a job driving a Semi.

Fulton County Justice system….YOU ARE A REALLY STUPID JOKE

All I know about this case is what I have read in the media. Having said that it appears to me that she is being used as a scape goat by the Fulton County School System. I have read that there were long running concerns about the dangers of having children cross a dark highway and that there were multiple issues with this location including a curve approaching the site. I think any rational person can put themselves in this situation. Its dark, you’re driving to work, you see a vehicle with flashing lights PARKED OFF THE SIDE OF THE ROAD! It could be a utility truck a garbage truck a farm implement. The first thing that occurred to me was that it was just a matter of time until that would have happened to someone.

She literally passed by myself and multiple others that were all stopped for the bus! She looked at her brother, the passenger in her SUV, and said, “**** it. I am going for it.” And then passed us all going over 70. She has never said she was sorry. She has shown no remorse. It was her fault. The rest of us followed the law. She threw the law away and murdered 3 children.
