Faith Mitzel was arrested in August. Today was a pre-trial hearing. Prosecutors are asking for a 30 day jail sentence and a 1-thousand dollar for each charge.

Mitzel’s Attorney says he feels jail time is a little harsh for the first offense. No matter what the punishment, the victim’s family wants Mitzel’s license taken away permanently.

“Maybe a house arrest or some type of monitoring, after that I don't know. I still think there needs to be a petition that there is no driving.”

Mitzel license was suspended after she was involved in a May 19th accident that left one dead and 2 injured. She'll be back in court November 30th.
