Online petition asks for tougher sentence in Northway accident plea


An online petition is asking the judge in the Dennis Drue case to impose a longer tougher sentence.

The petition, created by Melissa Elliot of Clifton Park at the site change.org, has gained almost 1500 online signatures.

Drue pleaded guilty in September to 58 charges, admitting to drinking, speeding and texting when he caused the accident that killed Shenendehowa students Deanna Rivers and Chris Stewart.

The two survivors, Baily Wind and Matt Hardy were severely injured.
