Last week, a ten year old boy lost his life in a traffic accident in Los Banos. According to police reports hey believe that 20 year old Justin Nappi, who was responsible for the crash, was under the influence of alcohol at the time. The tragic event not only killed the little boy, but also four other passengers were injured as well in the incident, and they are all currently at the hospital receiving treatments. Their injuries are still uncertain at this time.
The police arrested Nappi on multiple charges, include suspicion of felony DUI with injury, felony hit and run as well as gross vehicular manslaughter. This news has shocked the local community, because of the death of the little boy. Friends and family share that the accident that took his life wasn’t far from his home either. The family shares that they were driving that night after their boy was injured in a football game, they were already heading to the hospital, little did they know what event would bring them all there.
Justin Nappi is a twenty year old man, and with these charges over his head, if he is convicted he is facing years of punishment from the law. Our country takes driving under the influence very seriously, especially when the accidents take the life of another person. When a person is accused of these sorts of charges, it is imperative to contact a DUI defense attorney as soon as possible.
Not only was a life taken, but this man was under the legal drinking age and therefore was breaking multiple laws. As a young individual, he still has so much life ahead of him, and if convicted that could mean he spends a lot of it behind bars.
