I would like to state that Mr. Senavitis the accused of killing Senator James Rhoades went to trial for this in March 2010 and was acquited of the vehicular homicide as he did not cause the accident but infact the Senator himself was at fault for the accident which caused his own death.

Mr. Senavitis was guilty before proven innoccent and then proven innoccent by a jury only to remain guilty as you will see reading this House Bill No.2614 Session of 2010, as of June 18, 2010.

Special attention to (6) states HE WAS KILLED BY A DRUNK DRIVER.
(6) Rhoades died at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown
a day after being injured in an automobile accident near
Brodheadsville, Pennsylvania, in Monroe County. He was killed
by a drunk driver.
