A drunk driver who killed three children and their grandfather in a horrific crash north of Toronto has been sentenced to 10 years in prison followed by a 12-year driving ban.

Superior Court Justice Michelle Fuerst says the victims’ family will forever be suffering from the “life sentence” imposed by Marco Muzzo’s drunk driving.

Muzzo, 29, had pleaded guilty to four counts of impaired driving causing death and two of impaired driving causing bodily harm.

Nine-year-old Daniel Neville-Lake, his five-year-old brother Harrison, their two-year-old sister Milly and the children’s 65-year-old grandfather, Gary Neville, died last September after the van they were in was hit by a speeding Muzzo, who was driving an SUV.

Muzzo told the court last month that he would forever be haunted by the grief and pain he has caused the Neville-Lake family.

Prosecutors had asked for a sentence of 10 to 12 years behind bars and a ban on driving for eight to 10, but the defence had argued an eight-year sentence would be enough.

    It still says money can buy justice in this country

  • Raymond Roberts says:

    our justice system needs a major overhaul, he should have got 12 per person he killed not 12 total.
    I guess money talks.

  • Loise says:

    That is not enough!!!

    Above Pam Seattle Mentioned :

    “Minus time served. Marco muzzo’s sentence will be 9 years and 4 months plus a driving prohibition of 12 years @CityNews”

    Also with good behavior he will be released at 2/3 of his sentence, so he will technically only be incarcerated for 6 years, at which point as long as he hasn’t got in any trouble in jail he will automatically be released.
