The 19-year-old found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of York Region Police officer Garret Styles will not spend any time in custody.
The teen was sentenced to no jail time, but nine years of “additional supervision,” in today’s ruling.
The teen was rendered a quadriplegic in a crash that killed Const. Garrett Styles.
Judge Alex Sosna says the teen is already serving a life sentence because he is a prisoner in his own body.
The teen was 15 on June 28, 2011 when he was driving a van that was was involved in a crash in York region that killed Styles.
Styles pulled over the minivan the teen was driving and was then dragged and crushed by the van when the teen driver fled the roadside stop.
He was found guilty of first degree murder in June.
The teen’s lawyer asked for no time in custody, arguing that the teen’s quadriplegic condition as a result of the crash is sentence enough.
