A deputy in South Carolina whose police van was swept away by floodwaters in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, drowning two women seeking mental health treatment trapped in a cage in the back, was sentenced Thursday to 18 years in prison. A Marion County jury found former Horry County deputy Stephen Flood guilty of two counts of involuntary manslaughter and two counts of reckless homicide. Judges ordered Wendy Newton, 45, and Nicolette Green, 43, to be involuntarily committed the day they died in September 2018, but their families said they were not violent. Newton was only seeking medicine for her fear and anxiety, and Green's family said she was committed to a mental facility at a regular mental health appointment by a counselor she had never seen before. Flood, 69, was sentenced about 30 minutes after the verdict and after several relatives of the women said his decision to press forward with the shortest route left an impossible-to-fix hole in their lives.

It was only a few years ago that the word “gaslight” seemingly had no meaning, but the term quickly became prominent following Donald Trump ’s inauguration in 2016. Since then, the term gaslighting has become increasingly popular, with the Oxford dictionary even declaring it one of the most used words of 2018. Most recently, gaslighting has been a prominent topic in relation to the Amber Heard v Johnny Depp defamation trial, which has continued to put a focus on domestic abuse and the types of abuse that exist. Although now widely used, many are still confused about exactly what gaslighting is and when the proper context to use the term is.
