LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A woman who admitted she hit and killed a Las Vegas man as he pushed a shopping cart in 2017 near the Las Vegas Strip will not be granted house arrest.
Friends and family of the victim tell 13 Investigates, they received a letter indicating Alejandra Robertson was denied her request for the DUI residential confinement program.
"When I got this letter saying that she was denied, I can't say that I was joyous about it or happy about it," said Daria Jepsen, Johnny Sabo's longtime friend. "It was just like, well that's what we got to begin with."
"I respected the judges sentence," she added.
"We thank the public awareness," said Tina Quizon, Johnny's older sister.
"We really thank Channel 13, your TV station, and Joe [Bartels, 13 Action News Investigative Reporter] and [reporter] Tom [George] who did the original story," said Quizon. "Without the public input and without these TV reports, it just seems like there's no real protocol here and that the system, for whatever reason, is doing things that don't make sense."
13 Investigates reported on the situation in March when a letter surfaced which showed she was under consideration.
Robertson will be eligible for possible parole next year.
