Judge upholds new drunk-driving law

A man accused of killing a soldier just home from Iraq and three other men in a traffic crash has lost a bid to have the state's new drunken driving law ruled unconstitutional.Christopher Kozo, 24, of East Allen Township, is charged with four counts each of homicide by vehicle while driving drunk, homicide by vehicle and involuntary manslaughter, one count of driving after drinking alcohol.

Each charge of homicide by vehicle while driving drunk carries a mandatory minimum sentence of three years, meaning Kozo must get at least 12 years in prison if convicted on all four counts.

Kozo's lawyer, Thomas R. Ceraso, of Greensburg argued that the law was unconstitutional, but Northampton County Judge Leonard Zito ruled Wednesday that the law complies with state and federal guarantees of due process.
