A man who crashed his SUV into an Edmonton restaurant patio, killing a young boy, has been sentenced to four months in jail. Richard Suter (SOO'-tuhr) had pleaded guilty to failing to provide a breath sample after Geo Mounsef (MON'-sehf) died in 2013. A judge ruled that witnesses wrongly assumed Suter was drunk that night. He also took into account threats and vigilante actions against the man and his family after the accident. Sheri Arsenault with Victims for Justice says the boy's mother was upset by the sentence. (The judge also said in his ruling that Suter was given bad legal advice about not giving a breath sample after his arrest. The charge of failing to provide a breath sample in the case of a death -- a relatively new offence -- carries a maximum life sentence.)
