    B.C. driver jailed for running over flag person

    01/12/2006 7:00:01 PM
    A Kelowna man has been sentenced to two years in jail after being convicted of running over a flag person while driving drunk last summer.



    CBC News

    Raymond Robert Shaw, 29, had pleaded guilty to impaired driving causing the death of Theresa Neuman, who was working on a construction site.

    Shaw has worked to atone for his crime, said his lawyer, Dennis Morgan, who noted his client pleaded guilty right away, and issued a personal apology.

    "He did meet with Patrick Buchanan. That's the brother of the lady who was killed," he said. "A difficult meeting for both men, and it went very well."

    Morgan said Shaw might have been able to get a sentence of house arrest, rather than prison, but instead, Shaw insisted he deserved to go to jail.
    He said Shaw is also planning to work to prevent similar tragedies in the future.

    "Mr. Buchanan suggested, and Mr. Shaw agreed, that when he gets out of jail, they go together and talk to high school kids and talk about the dangers of drinking and driving, the devastating effects, from both perspectives." The Crown had asked for three years in prison. But in this case, the judge opted for a shorter sentence of two years, plus 18 months on probation.


    What a friggin' joke. I've seen people go to jail for two years for stealing a TV. It's nice to know, as a Canadian construction worker, that my life is worth something..........:surepal: :surepal: :surepal:

    Driving impaired should equal "intent to do harm".

    Watch your back out there Paul.

    why is it they get simpathy?

    Oh the poor guy has to live with it.

    SO ****ING WHAT, the other person DOESNOT GET TO LIVE.

    why becuase you didn't want to pay for a cab? or call a buddy?

    BULL****, all drucks are coward they cant face the world or the truth, ask them.

    I am sure most people know at least one drunk/alcohalic and if you ask them they denie it, they are all too ****ing cowardis to admit they are a drunk or are druck, so they drive home and make it a few times then kill someone with 3 kids and people so care about them, and sudenly the drunk is the victom.:mad:
