Topic - Only 12 months jail time if you kill a cyclist!??

ByEek - on 17 Apr 2014
I am generally reluctant to jerk my knee when supposedly lenient sentences are handed out, but only having to serve 1 year in prison for killing two cyclists whilst driving 70mph in a 30mph zone - whilst 2.5 times over the drink drive limit - in a stolen car - whilst banned and without insurance and having taken cocaine in the 24 hours before the accident, is kind of taking the p1ss!

I appreciate he actually got one year for each of the 7 offences he was charged with, but being allowed to serve them concurrently surely makes a mockery of such a sentence?

My deepest sympathies lie with the two partners and seven children who have had their worlds destroyed by this brainless idiot.
