Gloria Olson said Tuesday her husband, Michael, was “my everything, my love of 40 years.”

She continues to think about the struggle he must have gone through as he was “left to die on the street by Ashley Pennington,” after she turned her vehicle in front of her husband’s motorcycle, causing him to crash at C Avenue and 20 Avenue SW on Oct. 1, 2017.

“Ashley Pennington didn’t offer aid most people would give a dog after they hit it with a car,” Olson said in a victim’s impact statement during Pennington’s sentencing.

“I relive that nightmare in my mind, watching my love flying over his bike, laying bleeding in the street, struggling to breathe. I hope Ashley Pennington has those nightmares, too.”

6th Judicial District Judge Christopher Bruns on Tuesday sentenced Pennington to the maximum 25 years in prison, saying he did so based on Pennington’s extensive criminal history.
