Last year, Gavin's Law (AB 582) fell one vote short in the Senate Public Safety Committee. Assemblyman Patterson and the Gladding family are not giving up, but we need your help.Today the maximum sentence for a driver who hits, kills and runs is only four years behind bars. The driver who hit Gavin only served 1 year. Gavin’s Law will increase the maximum sentence for a fatal hit and run from 4 to 6 YEARS.
AB 582 closes a loophole that actually benefits drunk or drugged hit and run drivers. By fleeing, they avoid a potential 15-year sentence from a DUI charge.
