Christopher's Law Law and Legal Definition

Christopher's Law is a New Jersey bill seeking to make killing a person while driving without a valid license a crime. It's named after Christopher Williamson, a young boy who was struck from behind and killed by an unlicensed driver on June 14, 2004. New Jersey law makes it a crime to kill someone while driving with a revoked or suspended license. Because the driver has never applied for a license, he was only fined $200 for driving without a license and $230 in court fees.
