jenrgw Will Michigan Change Its Texting and Driving Law After Using it One Time?

Jerry Joseph of Lapeer County, Michigan is believed to be the first person to be charged under Michigan’s relatively new texting and driving law.  Last November, Mr. Joseph was allegedly texting while driving when he crashed into an elderly couple, killing the wife and seriously injuring the husband.  Mr. Joseph has been charged with a misdemeanor under the texting and driving bill and faces a maximum sentence of one year in prison.

Paul Paquin, the husband who survived the crash, and others are asking state lawmakers to reconsider the texting while driving law and to consider whether the punishment really does fit the crime in cases where texting and driving results in death or serious injury.
