The man, who pleaded guilty to impaired driving in a crash last year that killed three children and their grandfather, has learned his fate.
29-year-old Marco Muzzo was sentenced to 10-years behind bars, minus time served, that’ll see the sentence amount to nine years and four months.
That will be be followed by a 12-year driving ban.
He was also sentenced to five years, to be served concurrently, for injuries suffered in the crash by the children’s grandmother and great-grandmother.
In handing out the sentence in Newmarket court, Superior Court Justice Michelle Fuerst says the victims’ family will forever be suffering from the ”life sentence” imposed by Muzzo’s drunk driving, adding,”in one fell swoop, Mr. Muzzo decimated an entire generation of the Neville-Lake family.”’
Nine-year-old Daniel Neville-Lake, his five-year-old brother Harrison, their two-year-old sister Milly and their 65-year-old grandfather, Gary Neville, died last September after their van was slammed into by Muzzo in his speeding SUV.
He had returned from his bachelor party in Miami on a private plane and was driving home from Pearson airport when he ran a stop sign and crashed in the Neville-Lake’s van.
Muzzo’s blood alcohol content was three times the legal limit.
