Trooper Who Hit Motorcyclists Back On Road, Family Upset
DAYTON -- The state trooper who slammed into the back of a motorcycle hurting two people, is being allowed back on the road. It happened on US 35 back in August. A judge just granted Trooper Jacob Daymon driving privileges for work only.
Amy and Corey Waldman may have survived the crash, but they are still healing.
"They're making it slowly, it's a long process," said Jeff Mollencupp who's their best friend and is upset about the trooper back on the job.
Trooper Jacob Daymon was going 81 in a 65 and using his car computer console when he hit the Waldmans, according to the report. Daymon who was looking at an aggravated vehicular assault charge but a grand jury of his peers chose not to indict him on the felony. He was found guilty of a misdemeanor. The charge: failing to maintain assured clear distance. His license was suspended, he paid a 150 dollar fine, and he is allowed to drive for work only.
"Would Corey have been charged with a misdemeanor if the tables were turned? I don't think so, I don't think so," said Mollencupp.
"He did not get treated any different by the state patrol... the Greene co. prosecutors office or anyone locally. Whether or not that Grand Jury came to the right decision or not is a totally different story," said Mark Deters who is an attorney who specializes in traffic laws but he also used to be a police officer.
He explains what is at the center of the disappointment and anger with the case: distracted driving. Turns out, officers are somewhat immune.
"The legislature has said it's okay for police to type on their mobile data terminals, while they're operating their vehicle ...in motion."
While the Waldman's focus on healing, Jeff voices their frustration, "they could have been killed very easily... very easily."
