(NECN: Brad Puffer, Medford, Mass.) - State Senator Anthony Galluccio showed up in Medford District Court for the first time Friday as his hit and run case moves forward. Cambridge police revealed this week they had given Galluccio a ride home 13 hours before the accident because he was allegedly too drunk to drive. State Senator Anthony Galluccio: "We've concluded the session. And I am focused on a number of life issues and personal issues and I am committed to doing that I can't a whole lot more right now." Galluccio did not drive after the appearance and got into the back seat of a car. He would not say anymore about why or how he struck a minivan with a family for four inside then took off. The collision left an imprint of his license plate behind and reportedly injured a 14-year old boy. State Senator Anthony Galluccio: "I would like to say more but I can't because of the legal process, I hope you can respect that." "If our elected officials continue to get away with such actions we are setting a dangerous precedent." Several protesters gathered outside the courthouse in the rain. They want Galluccio held responsible. The 42-year-old State Senator has been in at least two other accidents involving alcohol. "People are upset this man has gotten a pardon and he got way in 2005 wit a multiple car crash. If you connect he dots you can see a pattern of some kind of favoritism." Galluccio is just the latest state senator to face problems. Former Senator Dianne Wilkerson faces corruption charges. James Marzilli has been indicted on charges of accosting several women in Lowell. Both resigned. But so far Galluccio has refused to step down. While Galluccio said he was dealing with personal issues, he would not say if that means he would be entering a rehab facility. He is expected back in court in mid-December.
