"Sean's Law" Official Today
By Elizabeth Christensen
Albany, NY – "Seans Law" takes effect today.
The legislation shortens the time it takes to get teenage drunk drivers off the road.
Previously, judges could not suspend the license of a driver under the age of 18 until all court proceedings were complete.
"Sean's Law" will allow judges to immediately suspend the junior licenses of driver who have been charged with DWI.
The law is named for 17 year old Sean French. The Columbia county teen was killed last New Year's Day when a teenage drunk driver hit him head on. The juvenile driver was awaiting arraignment on previous DWI charges.
