Amy Senser Appeals Conviction In Fatal Hit-And-Run

ST. PAUL (AP) – An attorney for Amy Senser contends his client didn’t get a fair trial when a jury convicted her in the hit-and-run death of a Minneapolis chef.

Defense attorney Eric Nelson Wednesday appealed Senser’s conviction to the Minnesota Court of Appeals. Nelson contends Senser’s conviction should be overturned because there isn’t enough evidence of her guilt, or she should be granted a new trial.

Senser, the wife of former Minnesota Viking Joe Senser, was sentenced to three years and five months in prison for the 2011 death of Anousone Phanthavong (ah-NOO’-sahn PAN’-tah-wong) in Minneapolis. Amy Senser claimed she did not know she struck a person with her SUV that night.

The Hennepin County attorney’s office had just received the brief and had no comment.
