Counsel: [REDACTED], for Crown

[REDACTED], for Accused

Released: [REDACTED]



Accused pursued and tailgated a vehicle driven by one of the complainant's at high speed through an intersection to "teach her a lesson." The accused's vehicle came into contact with the vehicle, which then collided head-on with the vehicle driven by the other complainant. Both complainants died instantly. The accused was convicted of two counts of dangerous driving causing death. The accused was sentenced to 21 months in jail. Mitigating factors included the accused's lack of a criminal record, a favourable pre-sentence report, and the fact the accused had two trials. Aggravating factors included the multiple complainants, the apparent lack of remorse, and that one of the deceased was pregnant at the time.
