Introduce Andrew's Law
Our Law Enforcement Officers in this great Commonwealth put their lives on the line each and every day when they step out of their homes, to protect us as citizens. Recently, a tragic accident took one of our own, Tazewell County native, Trooper Andrew David Fox. Trooper Fox was on special assignment in Richmond VA, and was ran over by a vehicle traveling off the interstate, which failed to acknowledge Trooper Fox and all the other Troopers directing traffic. The driver received a reckless driving citation and recently in a hearing in Hanover County pleaded nolo contendere meaning she neither admitted guilt nor innocence. She took a plea bargain of a $1000.00 fine and a 12 month suspended sentence in jail. This is important for all others who put their lives on the line each day, to show that something of this nature is not simply a slap on the wrist.
