I would like to bring to your attention several things the first is that in this video the truck (Unit 1) has already been moved off of the front of the Cadillac (Unit 2) onto the double yellow lines which place it completely in its own lane southbound.
Secondly the only evidence brought before Magistrate Debby York by the Prosecution were three things
1. The Police Crash Report done by Fern Ridge State Police, signed and sworn to by Trooper Jason Beers.
2. The Corner’s Report proving Senator James Rhoades was deceased and died from blunt force trauma to the chest causing internal bleeding due to a motor vehicle accident.
3. Their blood alcohol evidence on Mr. Senavitis from blood at the hospital.
How this was enough relevant evidence after the three months the Prosecution had for Magistrate Debby York to have the charges against Mr. Senavitis to go forward is ridiculous.
Ms. Yamila Yafar showed up to this preliminary hearing and as you see in this video as soon as she started walking to the courthouse doors DA David Christine and Trooper Jason Beers snagged her moving her away and talking to her. She then abruptly left the Courthouse never going in testify.
DA David Christine during the hearing after the three pieces of evidence stated above were revealed turned to ADA Colleen Mancuso for more evidence and she had stated that was all they had.

Vehicle #3 Minivan Yamila Yafar
Praise Yamila Yafar State Police Captain James Murtin did. He actually applauded her for a forbidden maneuver.
Not even a slap on the hand for committing several traffic violations, endangerment of a child [her own] , being a cause in a fatal accident and just outright ignorant in her actions.
At first it had been said she pulled over to attend her child and had also called 911 after the accident. Then it went to and stayed to she pulled onto the bridge [an elevated structure, short and narrow] with adequately placed potential danger hazard signs to use her cell phone. This call must have been life or death for Yamila Yafar because it was for Mr. Rhoades and in actuality for the rest involved including their families. The Police Report states she never put her vehicle in park. Was she actually pulled over or still in the act of? Mr. Rhoades was late for his great award ceremony at Pleasant Valley School, he did secure them $100,000 for renovations for their stadium [football].
Yamila Yafar pulled in at Magistrate Debby York’s Courtroom Building while we were standing outside. As she walked towards the building Yamila Yafar was approached by State Trooper Beers and County District Attorney David Christine. They had a short conversation with Yamila Yafar then quickly sent her away. This incident was caught by Channel 16 WNEP who did air this action and the reporters which did publish a picture of them speaking outside.
Testifying under oath Officer Beers couldn’t recall specifics about the third vehicle or driver. Without her presence there she was not available to testify for the Commonwealth which meant she wouldn’t be cross examined. Convenient!
