A car driven carelessly by 31-year-old Avinash Prasad landed on top of 42-year-old Sean Arland’s car (above)

Sentence of 90 days is not enough

The driver of a fatal crash had 17 driving infractions, including one in April of this year.

Re: “Driver gets 90 days for fatal crash,” The Leader, Nov. 6.

The sentence handed out to Avinash Prasad who caused a car crash in 2009 and killed a man is a miscarriage of justice.

He killed an innocent man and all he gets is 90 days in jail.

After his jail term is over, he will be free to walk again but the father-of-two that he killed will never return again.

He had 17 driving infractions including one in April of this year.

He has not learned his lesson yet. I doubt if he ever will.

Justice Murray Blok should have handed out a harsher punishment.

I have lost hope in the Canadian justice system. Criminals and reckless drivers are let off the hook very easily.

There is no justice for victims who have lost their loved ones.
