Stiffer West Virginia DUI Penalties Proposed After Teen's Death in Car Crash
A law proposed in the name of the victim includes harsh punishments such as life in prison after causing a death due to DUI instead of the current 2 to10 years in prison. Supporter belive such potential punishments could make people think twice before drinkin and driving.
The young teen who lost her life had her life cut short by someone who chose to be negligent and chose to drink and drive. My personal injury law firm colleagues and I support stronger penalties for drunk drivers. This kind of behavior is the epitome of recklessness and negligence. People need to understand that getting behind the wheel while drunk is simply unacceptable.
