Please help pass Franks Law. We are looking to ask the New York State capital to have Franks Law be statewide. We need as many signatures as possible that support this. The law would require mandatory bail when someone is charged with a crime which resulted in the death of a person because of reckless driving dwi vehicular manslaughter . What lesson is a person going to learn if they dont even get put in jail and asked for a bail That is crazy but it happened to Frank so to stop it from happening again please sign your name below saying that you support Franks Law . No tolerance in New York State needs to be kicked up a notch to let the public know that even if you are charged
with the crime that there will be immediate consequences . Given the short memory span of our teenagers these days ,a year from now when a person is being tried and sentenced they have all forgotten about the crime. Bail Standards
may not completely overcome the problem but it will be another tool to help prevent the slaughter happening on our highways and roads. Help establish minimum bail standards to underline the severity of alcohol-related deaths.
One example of our commitment to helping prevent deaths on the roads is the establishment of the Underage DWI Taskforce which has brought together adults from throughout Rensselaer county as well as school-aged children whom they have entrusted with the responsibility to carry a self-generated message to their peers that teenage alcohol and drug usage won\'t be tolerated in our communities.
Rensselaer County is leading the fight against underage drinking by supporting Frank\'s Law.This resolution was passed on June 12th 2007 by the Rensselaer County Legislature urging NYS Legislature to establish statewide madatory bail standards for crimes that result in the death of an innocent person.
This battle is something that we all need to be engaged in. We all have the ability to influence the children in our communities to try to help them make good decisions that will keep them safe. And that includes our judges.
With the understanding that bail is set to ensure the accused appears for later court matters, and that the more severe the charge the higher the bail, what is being said when no bail is set for someone who allegedly drove drunk and caused the death of another person
If we want to make the point about driving while intoxicated and causing someone else\'s death, shouldn\'t the bail set by the judge reflect that Shouldn\'t there be bail levied
We can no longer afford to miss opportunities to send messages to our children about the disastrous consequences that can result from drinking and driving. This is a battle we cannot afford to lose because we cannot afford to lose anymore of our children to drunk driving. .
