Parole hearing today drunk driver who killed three children and their grandfather
A parole hearing is slated for today for the drunk driver who killed three young children and their grandfather three years ago.
Marco Muzzo was sentenced to 10 years in prison after he pleaded guilty in one of Canada's most high profile drunk driving cases.
The September 2015 crash claimed the lives of 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.
As of November 9th, Muzzo could be granted the freedom to leave prison during the day and return at night.
Muzzo will be eligible for full parole next May and statutory release on June 18, 2022.
He also faces a 12-year driving ban, which will take effect on his release from custody.
The crash set off a wave of public grief that led to several candlelight vigils to honour the victims. It also sparked debate on the legal penalties for drunk driving, with some advocacy groups calling for tougher sentences.
