The state's contention comes in response to Senser's appeal for conviction in the death of a Roseville man.
Hennepin County prosecutors are contesting Amy Senser's appeal of her two criminal vehicular homicide convictions last year in connection with the death of a Roseville man, according to a Pioneer Press news report today.

Currently, she is serving a 41-month sentence. To see the complete …
