Buffalo, NY (WBEN) As Dr. James Corasanti walks out of prison, the father of the 18 year old struck by his car nearly two years ago is speaking out.
"Many think he's done his time. He's done his time for DWI, he has not done one second for killing Alix Rice, so no, there's been no justice here," says Richard Rice, Alix's father. When it comes to closure, he can't say either way, only saying the loss is constantly with him, and is constantly heavy. "When you wake up in the morning you have that moment of tranquility before you realize you're not asleep and it all comes rushing back," Rice adds.
Rice is urging people to call lawmakers to approve Alix's Law in the Assembly, which closes the loophole in the law that led to Corasanti's acquittal of more serious charges. "We need to get this bill ratified, and sent to the governor and have him sign it into law," urges Rice.
