A reason to not want to cycle in this country.
Most appalling in my opinion, the judge seeing fit to lock him up for only 7 1/2 years.
The tarrif in law is 14 years for death by dangerous driving. What mitigating circumstances did the judge take into consideration in his awarding of such a lenient sentence?
Well, let's see.........the driver was drunk, and also did a 'hit & run'. He did return to the scene with clothing soiled by the victim's body tissue, and he told the police it was tree sap.
Is it just me, but surely those are aggravating circumstances, that would justify locking him up for the full 14 years at the judges disposal?
