Victim's mom wants driver to lecture on dangers of speeding

  • Print

A 22-year-old man may not go jail for driving a speeding Chevy Cobalt that crashed and killed his friend.

If the victim's mother gets her way, Ashten Milne will end up lecturing high school students on the dangers of speeding.

Milne was in court Wednesday. A car he was driving flipped on PR 227 in the RM of Woodlands and killed his friend Nolan Kunz, 21, in June 2008.

Milne and another friend initially told police Kunz was the driver, but police investigated and Milne was charged with dangerous driving causing death.

He pleaded guilty last November to the charge. Police determined the car was going over 160 km/h when it crashed.

"It was beyond stupid, it was criminal," Crown attorney Joyce Dalmyn told the court.

Kunz's widowed mother wasn't in court, but Dalmyn said the woman "felt sorry" for Milne.

Dalmyn and defence lawyer Sarah Inness submitted a joint recommendation to Judge Robin Finlayson for no jail time for Milne. If accepted, Milne would receive three years' supervised probation, a nightly curfew, a drug and alcohol ban and a driving prohibition.

Finlayson reserved the sentencing decision.
