Leandra's Law drunken-driving loopholes closed

New York State's drunken-driving laws become tougher starting Friday, according to Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice, who on Thursday announced changes to Leandra's Law that closes some loopholes in the original legislation. The law is named in memory of 11-year-old Leandra Rosado, who was killed by an inebriated driver on Manhattan's Westside Highway in 2009. Videojournalist: Chris Ware (Oct. 31, 2013)
