Driver sentenced to four years for fatal motorcycle crash
A driver involved in a Lappe crash that claimed the life of a 28-year-old motorcyclist will spend four years behind bars.
Randall Nault, who previously pleaded guilty to dangerous operation of a motor vehicle for the August 2017 crash that killed Nicholas Berardi, was sentenced in a Thunder Bay courtroom earlier this week.
Shortly after the crash, provincial police said the pick-up truck failed to stop at the stop sign.
In addition to the four-year prison term, Nault was also sentenced to a five-year driving prohibition and must submit a DNA sample.
Nault had also been charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle causing death and failure to provide a breath sample, but those charges have been withdrawn. – Tbnewswatch

Four years? That’s it? For what I believe to be murder? Only four years? Is that what a human life is now worth. With all of the “time offs” for this and that, the murderer will be out in two years? Maybe less.
Failing to provide a breath sample charges were withdrawn? Why? Did he or did he not provide a breath sample? If he did then why were the charges laid? If he didn’t, why were they dropped? Seeing a lot of this lately.
If courts don’t get serious about sentencing, vigilante justice will start to rear its ugly head. People need to respect the courts. I don’t see how this kind of crap garners any kind of respect for our justice system.
Lifetime driving ban? Causing a death, then yes. Lifetime driving ban.
