Tougher Laws sought in alcohol related deaths Indiana apr Robert Bell would like to secure a Long prison term for the Young men accused of supplying the Beer and Vodka that a College student drank until she fell asleep and died. But under the most severe criminal charge that a jury is Likely to convict on the four would face no More than one year in jail Indiana county a District attorney said. And in reality Bell believes none is Likely to spend even a Day behind bars. He remembers three former Carnegie Mellon University students who were convicted of furnishing alcohol to minors after a 19-year old died at a Christmas party in 1995, the three received probation and were ordered to de liver speeches on the dangers of drinking. Bell is calling on the legislature for a new Law providing for up to five years in prison for anyone convicted of contributing to an alcohol related death. A there s a Law in the books now that if someone Sells an illegal drug to you and you die you get a mandatory minimum of five years. I would like to see the same thing with an alcohol he said in the More recent Case Lorraine Hanna. 18, of Sarver Butler county paid $5 to attend a new years eve a at an off Campus apartment at Indiana University of Pennsylvania she drank Beer and Vodka until she tired and went to another apartment to sleep. The next Day her twin sister discovered her lifeless body. Lorraine Hanna had died of alcohol poisoning. Her blood alcohol level was More than four times the Legal limit for driving. This week Bell charged the four party organizers with furnishing alcohol to minors and Selling liquor without a License misdemeanours carrying maximum penalties of a year in jail and a $2,500 Fine. The men Are Kevin Mckee 21, of Connellsville Jeremy Gatten 21, of Bentleyville and James Bower 22, and his brother Christopher 19, both of Gibsonia. Hannah a parents wanted Bell to charge the four with involuntary manslaughter which applies in cases of death caused by recklessness or Gross negligence and carries a maximum sentence of five to 10 years. Bell said what happened to Hanna does not support such a serious charge. A the fact that the defendants broke the Law by supplying alcohol to miss Hanna is not enough to show disregard for human life a he said. Flirt her the states appeals courts have overturned involuntary manslaughter convictions in similar cases he said. A a that a kind of a defeatist attitude a said Hannah smother Margaret a if its the Law its the Law.
