The sentence was five and half to 12 years. But you have to put it in perspective. The recipient is an 82 year old woman. But that didn't stop Luzerne County Judge Fred Pierantoni from slamming Helen Galli, of Wyoming, with that penalty after she poisoned her son's then-girlfriend, Dawn Simyan's, fruit juice with antifreeze.
