In Honor of…Nicholas Cahill

My son Nicholas who had just turned 20 and 3 of his friends were all killed on impact when they were hit head on by a drunk/drugged driver. He received a minor total sentence of 6yrs for killing all 4 boys. The drunk/drugged driving laws in California when someone is killed are a disgrace and an insult to the victims and their families. We were told they plea bargained for the 6yrs because it wasn’t worth the cost of a trial. 4 young lives taken and it didn’t justify the cost of a jury trial? There is something very wrong with the justice system.
