There wont be any more jail-time for Richard Suter.
He’s the Edmonton man who had been driving his SUV–when it slammed into a restaurant patio in 2013—and killed 2-year old Geo Mounsef.
At the time—he refused to provide a breath sample—because that was the legal advice he was given.
He got four months in prison for that—but then the Alberta Court of Appeal boosted it to 26 months.
Today—the Supreme Court of Canada says Suter’s case is unique–because he got bad legal advice, wasnt impaired at the time of the crash—and was attacked by vigilantes who cut off his thumb.
So–his sentence has been lowered to “time already served”—and is no longer banned from driving.
