Hamilton teen's 90 year driving ban overturned; Victim's family outraged

By Tiffany Teasley – bio | email

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - The Hamilton teen was just 16 years old when he was charged with driving drunk without a license, and hitting a tree in November of 2008, the fatal crash killed his passenger, 25-year-old Louis Senger, Jr.

"I really hate that he's gone, it still seems like he's not," said Louis Senger, the victim's father.
 
Judge Ronald Craft had sentenced the teen to a year in prison and barred him from getting a driver's license for 90 years, until the 12th District Ohio Appeals Court reversed that ruling.
 
"In compliance with the ruling from the 12th District Court of Appeals, when you turn 21 you have the right to apply for any Ohio Driver's license" Craft said in court.
 
Now the 17-year-old will be back behind the wheel in just four years, and the victim's family says justice wasn't served.
 
"He didn't do the year and now he's getting his license back, I just feel sorry of the next person that he kills," Senger said.
 
Senger thinks about his son everyday and says nothing can bring him back, meanwhile he's baffled that the teen convicted of killing his son gets to go one living his life, he just hopes it doesn't happen to someone else.
 
"My son's not going to be here, I just hope he doesn't kill anyone else, I hope this might have made him grow up a little bit,"Senger said.
 
The Appeals Court also reversed the ruling of restitution at an undermined amount, to address this, the judge set a restitution hearing for April 27.
