The ABC brings word that the Director of Public Prosecutions has had enough of soft sentencing for drink drivers in the Magistrate’s Court and is asking the Supremes to have a look at it.
- Last year 38-year-old Peter Waugh from Kambah recorded a blood-alcohol level of 0.185.
He appeared in court in May on two drink-driving charges, one of which Chief Magistrate Ron Cahill dismissed.
On the other charge, Magistrate Cahill sentenced Mr Waugh to a six-month good-behaviour bond on the conditions he not drive within 10 hours of drinking alcohol and pay $300 to a Canberra children’s cancer charity.
Too soft? Or just right?
