Why didn't they get a handwriting expert to authenticate the note? If this is a scam, she deserves what she gets. But I can really see a wife, weakened by an abusive husband (he obviously has a drinking problem as well) trying to please him by taking credit for the crash to save his relationship with his son. If he really did this, and is letting her go to jail for it, he's the worst possible role model for his son. If it's true, I hope karma makes his life as miserable as hers will be!
