Sept 2016, life support was switched off on Taylen, a 4yr old boy due to injuries sustained in a car accident.... The driver at fault has a lengthy driving record, a criminal history record and had traces of drugs in her system at the time of driving... She crossed over the white line, injuring 4 people, the 4 year old, who was securely fastened in his seat, never had a chance at survival.

1643 days later, after many adjournments the matter is finalised. 1643 days of hoping for justice. 1643 days waiting... The result, 3.5 years wholly suspended, no time previously served, no jail time or accountability what-so-ever... No justice at all for the family who will never get to see that beautiful boy grow up.

I, for one, would like to see mandatory jail time for dangerous driving causing death, served in custody, particularly for people with a lengthy driving records and criminal history. Wholly suspended sentences are a "kick in the face" for families who have lost loved ones. It appears that the life cut short didn't matter... There is no "justice", no closure, no recognition for the loss of a life, no recognition of the other occupants injured, no recognition of the anguish and heartache of the family. It's all like it didn't matter....

Change the law and make jail time mandatory, serving at the very least part of the sentence in prison, not wholly suspended. Provide some justice, provide compassion and closure for victims of another's dangerous driving.  Maybe this may be a better deterrent, roads would be safer. Don't let another family suffer the same fate our family has. #taylenslaw #justicefortaylen
