Crime - Sacto 911

Walden gets 25-to-life. ‘I can’t grasp the depth of your selfishness,’ judge tells him

Harison Long-Randall, 21, pushed his girlfriend safely out of the way of the speeding car that mowed him down that July night, severing his leg and causing injuries that led to his death 13 days later. Behind the wheel of the 1987 Nissan Maxima was Paul William Walden, now 33, who prosecutors say had either just shot up heroin or was on a desperate, reckless search for a fix. He was sentenced to 25 years to life on Friday.
