TAMPA — Jennifer Porter, the dance teacher who fled in her car after killing two children and injuring two others in a hit and run crash, filed for bankruptcy Monday under Chapter 7, which entails the total liquidation of non-exempt assets without a plan for repayment.
In court papers, she lists $37,961.15 worth of debt accumulated in 11 different credit accounts. She lists $3,675 worth of assets, including a 1997 Toyota Celica, clothes, furniture and a $20 television. She lists her gross monthly income as $800.
Porter, 33, lives with her family and owns a dance studio. In 2005, she pleaded guilty to a charge of leaving the scene of a crash with death. She has served two years of house arrest and continues to serve three years of probation.
