Amy Senser’s Attorney Says She Deserves New Trial

ST. PAUL (AP) — An attorney for Amy Senser has urged the Minnesota Court of Appeals to overturn his client’s conviction for criminal vehicular homicide.

A three-judge panel heard arguments Wednesday a year after a jury convicted Senser in the death of a Minneapolis chef.

Senser’s attorney, Eric Nelson, argued it’s possible to infer that Senser didn’t know she struck Anousone Phanthavong on a freeway ramp that night.

Nelson noted that Senser left her SUV in the driveway when she got home. He says such behavior is inconsistent with knowing you killed someone.

Senser is nine months into a 41-month prison sentence. She did not attend the hearing but her husband, former Minnesota Viking Joe Senser, was in the courtroom.

The panel has three months to rule.
