‘Deeply disturbing’: Harry Dunn’s family criticise US suspect’s lawyer

Harry Dunn’s family have criticised the lawyer for the US woman charged over his death, saying her stance “boggles the mind and is deeply disturbing”.

They said the suggested reason for Anne Sacoolas not to return to the UK– a potentially long jail sentence – was “unworthy of someone of her standing”.

It comes after lawyer Amy Jeffress said the possible 14-year prison sentence was “not proportionate” for what was “a terrible but unintentional accident”.

Meanwhile, Boris Johnson has promised to continue to press the US on behalf of the family of Harry Dunn “at every level”.

Sacoolas, the wife of an American intelligence officer, left the country after the car she was driving was involved in a crash in which Mr Dunn died outside an RAF base in Northamptonshire in August.
