The trial revealed that Grossman allegedly hit the children in a crosswalk, then fled the scene. Prosecutors argued she was speeding at 81 mph, nearly double the legal limit, and impaired. Grossman’s sobriety test indicated a blood-alcohol content level of .08%.

In a surprising defense tactic, lead attorney Tony Buzbee tried to shift blame to Grossman’s then-boyfriend, Scott Erickson. However, Deputy District Attorney Ryan Gould dismissed the theory as baseless, calling it a “ridiculous” attempt to divert responsibility.

The jury deliberated for two days before reaching a verdict, finding Grossman guilty. Despite the conviction, she had remained free throughout the trial on a $2 million bond.
