The driver, Anna Gonzalez, pleaded guilty in court on Tuesday and faces 17 years in prison. During the court hearing, Robinson showed the judge the bills she has had to pay as a result of Gonzalez’s actions. Gonzalez was an illegal immigrant who has been living in the U.S. for 12 years and never owned a South Carolina driver’s license.

Even though Robinson’s son, Justin Walker, was not at fault, she had to pay for wrecked car to be stored for months, in case there was a trial.

“I had to pay to have the vehicle towed,” she said. “I had to pay for the vehicle to be removed and to clean up the street from Justin’s blood on the ground.”

Robinson said that was the bill that stung the most – paying $50 to have the street cleaned.

“First of all, having to open the mail and look at the charge to the deceased, Justin Darryl Walker — the deceased! It’s just a hard thing to deal with in the context of your child,” she said.

She said she has a hard time working now because of the emotional effects of the accident, and having bills keep on arriving when she has no income is very frustrating.

The state’s victim assistance fund has provided some money, but it primarily covers funeral, medical and counseling expenses.

Robinson thanked law enforcement and prosecutors for being supportive in court, but added that situations like Gonzalez’s have to be dealt with.

“We have to be able, as a country, to figure out a way with people here who are illegal and commit crimes,” Robinson said.
