Amy Senser’s Prison Time Shortened by 6 Months

Minnesota Department of Corrections

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – State officials say Amy Senser will be released nearly six months early from the prison where she is serving time for a fatal hit-and-run.

A spokeswoman for the Minnesota Department of Corrections says Senser applied and was approved for transfer to a jail or halfway house for work release.

Reports say Senser can leave the Shakopee prison on April 24 – less than two years after her incarceration began.

Senser’s release date from prison had been Oct. 20, 2014. She’ll be on supervised release until Dec. 8, 2015.

Senser, wife of former Minnesota Vikings player Joe Senser, was convicted of criminal vehicular homicide in the 2011 death of 38-year-old Anousone Phanthavong. Phanthavong was struck while refilling his gas tank on a Minneapolis exit ramp.
