Not long enough

I blogged in September on how a case could have been made for Brydon Boyce to be charged with murder instead of manslaughter for killing someone while driving under meth at 200 km/hr. This was not an accident.

The definition of murder includes:

if the offender for any unlawful object does an act that he or she knows to be likely to cause , and thereby kills any person, though he or she may have desired that his or her object should be effected without hurting any one.

Anyway he got sentenced on Monday and got seven years and four months. There is no mention of a minimum non-parole period, so presumably he could be out in two years and four months!

The family of the victim meanwhile do suffer a life sentence of having lost their father and husband.
