There have been many of us under the impression that Yamila Yafar was coming forward to tell the truth and that is why she was sent away from the preliminary hearing by DA David Christine and PA Trooper Jason Beers at Magistrate Debby York’s. But, why would she, she was guilty of so many traffic violations as well as being the obstruction that set up the motor vehicle accident that claimed the life of Senator James Rhoades, causing injury to Edith Rhoades and severely injuring Mr. Senavitis which could have claimed his life also.

If you want to discuss payoffs, here is one for you. Yamila Yafar in cooperating with the prosecution and the Rhoades/Hobbs family to keep the burden of guilt on Mr. Senavitis who is the only innocent party in this entire cituation and away from Yamila Yafar’s part and Senator Rhoades for going around her and into the on coming lane into Mr. Senavitis she has received $2,392.38 for damages from Progressive Direct Insurance Company which is her insurance company and is awaiting her $10,000.00 payment by Safe Auto which is Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis’ insurance company and that is still not enough because Yamila Yafar and her insurance company still want Mr. and Mrs. Senavitis to pay out of their pockets another $1,592.38 as their insurance company, to them, did not pay enough for settlement that Yamila Yafar isn’t even entitled to.

How does she justify her suit for the $10,000 as well as the money for damages to her vehicle? Insurance Fraud at it best. She was not injured nor was her infant, the only way she would qualify for that $10,000 is if injuries were suffered by her or her infant and she had no fault in the accident nor comitted any traffic violations.

Nationwide is the Rhoades’ insurance company they should be paying for the damage to her vehicle and nothing more.

Neither Yamila Yafar or the Rhoades have any right to sue or pursue with this unlawful twist they have made on the entire accident for their protection and gain. Disgrace and Criminal does not even cover all the words for what they have conspired.

The entire accident has been a grand cover-up, conspired and full of corruption on the part of all who were dispatched to the accident on the evening of October 17, 2008, those that became stuck in the Beechwood Inn as they stood outside witnessing not necessarily the impact but the vehicle positioning at rest. Yamila Yafar is a disgrace and criminal but so are all you withholding information of truth for proper justice.

Remember GOD knows and you will have to stand before him some day, pray for your soul.




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.



Imagine yourself on your way home from picking your pay check up at work and the stopping to get it cash, all is well driving Southbound on SR 209 to return home with plans of going away that night for a four day weekend but as you enter onto the bridge just before the Beechwood Inn out of the blue your see the front grill of a car coming your way and slamming into you.  

The 1994 Chevrolet Silverado drive by Thomas Senavitis was not equipt with air bags and as he stated he was unsure if he had he seat belt. 

He was found lying across the floor of the truck, removed from the vehicle and put into the back of a West End Ambulance to have his injuries worked on,  from their a life flight came in a picked him up to take him to St. Lukes Hospital in Bethlehem.

DA David Christine stated “with the alleged alcohol reading he should have been in a coma let alone be able to get in a motor vehicle” .  

The time of accident was about 6:30 PM on 10-17-08 and Mr. Senavitis brought to St. Luke hospital with multiple severe injuries through none of which life threatening if not operated on immediately,  he was operated on within 12 hours of the inital accident.   If Mr. Senavitis had any alcohol level protocal would have delayed the surgery until which time was safe from intoxication as the alcohol would create complications during surgery and anesthisia. 

Imagine yourself coming from anesthisia to in a hospital, being all drugged up and seeing a cage literally going through and around your leg.  Having difficulty speaking, eating and drinking due to severe injuries to the mouth go through the roof of your mouth up into the sinus passages.  

Once released home the care was constant having to continually change bandages and keep the wound clean and covered with medication which took more than one family member to do, to hold bandages from moving out of place, holding the leg up and wrapping it around all those rods, at the same time.

First Surgery Incision

First Surgery IncisionFive rods inserted into Mr. Senavitis' leg as plates were put in to hold all the bits and pieces of bone to gether as the tibia and fibia both broke and shattered into pieces.Ulcer From Injury

 Ulcers Mr. Senavitis developed on ankle and leg due to the severity of the internal damage to leg, ankle and foot.


Mr. Senavitis was severely bruised throughout his entire body, had his left elbow wripped open, several broken ribs on the left side which each rib broke in three pieces and a break in his back.

The second surgery on Mr. Senavitis’ leg entailed an incision on the inner side of his of his right leg the same size as on the outer side of his left when they removed the affixiator, put in another plate with screws holding bone pieces together and soft casting right away.

He went from the soft case to a hard cast and when the hard cast was removed he worn a moon boot to get used to putting his leg down for walking.  

He went from wheelchair to a walker to a moonboot, and just putting his leg through therapy and weening off the moonboot had his bail revoked in a outragous act by Carbon and Monroe County working together. 

He has not recovered from the leg and back injury and is imprison without proper medical treatment.   He is being victimized over and over in every way by the system and those controlling it.  

Also a note I would like to bring to everyone’s attention when imprisoned they were given no medical problems Mr. Senavitis was suffering but the prosection made it clear to the medical department of the prison that Mr. Senavitis needed to be medicated for withdraw in which Mr. Senavitis refused and never took.  He was seen twice a day for syptoms and a check on his withdraw and show absolutely none, never went through withdraw like the prosection was trying to get documented to make him out to be such a damage to himself and society and a alcoholic that could live without it.  

How much does one person have to endore especially when they are innocent.  He has been proven guilty without a chance to prove his innocense .   Every right has been taken from this man and the abuse continues daily for him.


The Rhoades family released a written statement in response to today’s arrest:


Mary Edith Rhoades releases a dove after the dedication of the Senator James J. Rhoades Downtown

“We would like to extend our gratitude to the Pennsylvania State Police and thank them for spending the time and effort to conduct a thorough investigation that has been professionally handled from start to finish. The actions by the Pennsylvania State Police detectives, troopers, and investigators have been nothing less than exemplary. 

“Also, we would like to thank the Monroe County District Attorneys Office who, in conjunction with the State Police, have been professional, courteous, and diligent in their efforts. 

“While the general public and media outlets continued to look for a quick story and fast results, it is extremely important to remember that with any investigation thoroughness outweighs haste. 

“We want to thank the entire community for the tremendous outpouring of support, well-wishes, and prayers. This love, compassion, and support provided to us has been of tremendous assistance during this difficult time. 

“While our grief is understandable, it is difficult to describe the level of disappointment, anger, and sadness this most recent information has caused. While accidents can and do happen, this tragedy was completely avoidable. Due to a grossly malicious and reckless act, we have not only lost a husband, father, and grandfather, but on a larger scale, the community has lost a good man, a dedicated public servant, a steadfast leader, and the number one fighter for school children in the Commonwealth. 

“Because of these charges and the ongoing criminal case, this will be the Rhoades family’s last public statement regarding the accident. We thank the media and general public for respecting our privacy.”


Yamila Yafar, the driver of the Ford Windstar minivan that was involved in the fatal accident that would claim the life of Pa. Sen. James Rhoades, talks to Monroe County District Attorney David Christine p

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!
