On September 15, 2002 my father Edward J. Uhl was on his way home when a truck failing to yield the right of way hit him head on, killing him. The person who did this got the maximum penalty for traffic infractions in N.Y., which was a $100 fine and 15 days in jail. He was even driving with a restricted license for a DUI he received not even a year before. He should not have even been on the road. He was never even charged for the death of my father. Yet our family was given a life sentence.
