WHAS11) – The Louisville man charged with hitting and killing two little girls while he was fleeing police this summer has already gotten a break from Kentucky’s prison system according to some.
WHAS11 News has learned that Kenielle Finch’s first prison sentence was cut short, by the state’s new, controversial early release policy.
Finch’s case may now be exhibit A in the attorney general’s lawsuit, challenging that policy.
First, let’s make clear that Kenielle Finch is still behind bars, awaiting trial for the July murders of two little girls he struck while they were crossing the street near the University of Louisville.
Finch was a parole violator with a long list of criminal charges when police finally caught him after that hit and run. Little did Finch know what a break he was about to get from the state prison system. Commonwealth’s attorney David Stengel is outraged and says you should be too.
