Well, while I agree the punishment is too harsh, she broke the law resulting in a death. That part really isn't up for debate. Don't like it, then legalize jaywalking. As for the driver, well, clearly he shouldn't have been drinking, but as for hitting the kid, I can't condemn him for that. I was driving the other night, it was about midnight, really dark, and I was on the side road next to the highway. There was these guys out riding their bikes in the middle of the street, no reflective anything. I didn't even see them until I was nearly on top of them. I could have easily killed them and I wasn't even on anything. You just don't expect to be driving down the road in the dark and have pedestrians do stupid shit like that.
