A man who killed a mother and her three young daughters in a traffic accident in Brampton while high on drugs is appealing the guilty verdict and the sentence imposed.
Brady Robertson's attorney filed the motion last month. He argues that the trial judge erred in upholding the constitutionality of Canadian law that sets a limit for the concentration of THC, the active ingredient in cannabis, in a motorist's blood.
According to the documents submitted, Brady Robertson requests that the provisions of the law concerning the concentration of THC in the blood be invalidated and the verdict, quashed.
He had a THC concentration of 40 nanograms per milliliter of blood approximately 45 minutes after the accident, which is eight times the allowed limit.
The 22-year-old was sentenced in May to 17 years in prison, less time already served in custody. Upon his release, he will be prohibited from driving for 20 years.
Brady Robertson had pleaded guilty to four counts of dangerous driving causing death following the collision which claimed the lives, in June 2020, of Karolina Ciasullo and her three daughters Klara, Lilianna and Mila, who were between the ages of 1 and 6.
Karolina Ciasullo and her three daughters, Klara, Lilianna and Mila, lost their lives in the crash.
< p class="e-p">However, he pleaded not guilty to four charges of drug-impaired driving causing death. His lawyers had also challenged the constitutionality of the drug-impaired driving law.
The constitutional complaint having been rejected earlier this year, Brady Robertson was later convicted of impaired driving causing death. He was also found guilty of dangerous driving following another accident which had occurred two days earlier.
Brady Robertson is also challenging the sentence, which he considers inadequate and too hard.
