A 21 year old Ontario man received a 9-month jail sentence, a ten year driving prohibition and 2 years probation for impaired driving.
He was charged following an alcohol-related crash that left his passenger, his then girlfriend, with serious brain injuries.
The Ontario Court of Justice judge commented that the driver must have been living in a cave for the past twenty years not to realize the dangers of drinking and driving.
His blood-alcohol content was more than double the legal limit of .08. Speed was also a factor.
