This petition was delivered to:

NC State Legislature

Increase the penalties for fleeing the scene of an accident.

    1. Petition by

      The Austin Campaign

If the person who struck Austin is caught, the penalty is unlikely to be more than 6 years imprisonment and could be as little as 3 and 1/2 years. This is without considering plea deals. If you believe this is too little, please sign this petition.

      I am signing because I was a friend of the family and knew Austin's father well. I am so sorry for their loss, Austin was a nice young man. The person who did this deserves to be punished. I pray for the Baeza's.

      Each day these kind of people hide from doing such a horrendous act should tack on another year of imprisonment. These people need punishment not a time out.
