I lost a granddaughter, Abigail Lacey Dudley, in August. She was 17 and was killed by a drunken driver who was also 17. He got six months for vehicular homicide and 12 months for vehicular assault for the other two boys who were also hurt. Abigail was the only one who died. The driver had been cited three times before this, and just a slap on the hand.
The laws in the state of Washington are a joke and it takes a village to keep these kids safe and if this kid had been arrested the first citation, my Abby would be here. We need to change these laws, and if they remain the same, then Abby’s death means nothing.
I am very passionate about this and I would hate to see the next child who could very well be yours or a friend of yours. #justiceforabby.
