Woman driver who killed two in Chiang Mai gets suspended sentence, pays damages


Recommended Posts

Um, RIP the two poor souls that had their lives cut short.

 

But when Thailand drivers can kill or be killed at a rate of over 23,000 individuals or more each year there is very little left to say.

 

As my divorce lawyer once said to me in court; if you want justice my son St. Mary's Cathedral is across the road.  

 

This is a courtroom where anything and everything is possible!

It’s not a value of a life, just compensation to place responsibility and ease the pain of loss. Something that happens all over the world. Why do westerners constantly overthink things here to suit

Disgusting. Only about money for the deceased's family. Surely the authorities have a duty to punish reckless driving harshly as it is (or should be) a key component in reining in potential bad d

In any developed country it would have been 'Causing death by dangerous driving' and she would most likely recieve a sentence of 5-7 years in Jail for causing the deaths of two innocent people !

The accident that saw the death of a well known Thai stylist and her friend in January has been resolved by a court.

Two people dead, but in the end money resolves everything...

I know it can't bring them back but a real punishment might just make people more responsible for their actions!

1 million baht is what I make per hour. Literally. 1 million baht is a tiny fine for killing two people. An absolute disgrace! What is to Incentivize people to obey the law when all you have to do is pay a small fine to get out of trouble? I’m well aware that murder in Thailand is a 1 million baht fine ( know of a guy that committed 12 and paid 12 x 1 million baht fines ) but one would think that with a public case like this, they would have set the fine to at least 30 million baht. At least.

The Chiang Mai court handed down a three year jail term and 41,000 baht in fines for dangerous driving causing death. 

 

The jail term and fines were reduced by half on admission by the defendant. The prison term was suspended for two years by the court. 

 

After all the dust was settled, are we sure the court didn't actually end up ordering the families of the victims to pay some money to the accused?

 

The way the sentence kept getting cut and cut and cut, it certainly seems it was headed in that direction, if things had gone any further!!!   :w00t:
