Really? That is bullshit. Like rewarding him.
I disagree. His daughter shouldn't be punished for the crimes of her father.
I could understand if the crime involved some financial gain to the perp and loss to the victim (e.g. if he stole money from the victim, then the family of the victim should have the right to go after that money whether it's from the perp himself or his estate). That isn't the case here though.
Also, the loophole about his conviction being wiped out is strange, though pretty inconsequential since he's dead.
I wonder if the facts of that night -- and what led to it -- will ever come to light now.
