@ Flexa - Can you only imagine if it were the crown counsel who made such an assumption. I would say we would be hearing about the law suit as we speak. A complete shame that a defense lawyer would even try to use such a thing as some sort of justification!

While the judge recognized Davis should not drink, Brown said he would not want an addiction to land Davis in further legal trouble separate of other criminal allegations. Am I missing something hear! Is this Judge stating alcohol is not an addiction?

So many things wrong with this incident, it's hard to know where to begin. Suffice to say, 9 1/2 months?! Woah boy! What a friggin joke.

acording to court records on cases like that the sentence is way too high. there have been cases of people, kids being killed in hit and runs, drunk drivers. i just think if he killed someone, the sentence would be lighter.

"Duty counsel Jane Fitzpatrick also told the court that Davis’ grandparents told her the 20-year-old cannot handle alcohol like most people due to his aboriginal background. Davis is a status Indian from the Mi'kmaq community." Wow if anyone else made such a suggestion we'd be cast as a racist and profiling but i guess it's ok for Nan and Pop to use the racial/aboriginal card if it helps get young Ty from being accountable for his actions. What a pile of BS!

The grandparents of Mr. Davis only told the court appointed lawyer 5 minutes before Mr. Davis was to report for sentencing and did not use his status to get any sentence reduced - they did not know it would - it was just a refresher of Mr. Davis's life - they did not use this for any favours as they did not know it would have any inpact on the judge's decision - apparently the Crown attorney had the information that Mr. Davis had a aboriginal backgroud as he produced a copy of the card in court - Mr.Davis's attorney did not know this except 5 minutes before court was in session. The grandparents were only trying to get the point across that help was needed for not only Mr. Davis but also for those in jail that have been denied the medical attention that they required. There are many that have been denied their medication - would you refuse a cancer patient in jail their treatment - please look at all the facts before you make any decisions.

too bad he never hit and killed a moose, he might have got some jail time.

"Brown placed conditions on his eventual release, but said he would not prohibit him from consuming alcohol." Why not? Alcohol got him in trouble. The vehicle was insured but that means the insurance company has to pay for another and our rates go up. He got 10 months and doesn't have to replace the vehicle. He'll get out and get drunk and do it again. But that's ok, he's sorry.
