    excellent news, if this was a supreme court decision then i think that means there can be no more appeals and he will be jailed straight away.

    25 months for smashing a bus driver in the face with a stone, and then driving his car deliberately into a group of passengers, and also have a load of class a drugs on him. Anyone without the clout of the HiSo behind him would be in jail for 20 years for the drugs alone.

    He looks a bit shocked. Now to get a cell for his dad.

    In February 2015, Kanpitak's father Kan-anek, 64, was arrested at a hotel in Huai Khwang district, Bangkok, allegedly in possession of 1.07 grammes of crystal methamphetamine and drug-use paraphernalia....

    Millionaire's Son Gets 2 Years for 'Mercedes' Murder

    If this guy has been found guilty of the charges,shouldn't he be in a mental hospital not normal prison,or do the courts not send such offenders for treatment.?

    BANGKOK — The Supreme Court sent the son of a well-known businessman to jail Friday for killing a bus conductor with his Mercedes-Benz eight years ago, reversing a previous verdict that spared him from jail term on the grounds of mental illness.

    Kanpitak Patchimsawas, 33, was found guilty of premeditated murder, attempted murder and physical assault, and sentenced to two years and one month in prison. His parents, millionaire Kananek Patchimsawas and former Miss Thailand Sawinee Patchimsawas, were not in court to hear the verdict.

    The dead woman’s daughter was, however.

    “I have gone through so much sadness, despair and hopelessness. But today, my fight is successful. I am glad to have successfully fought for my mother,” said Sucheera Intarasuwansaid, the daughter of bus conductor Saichon Luangsaeng.

    In 2007, Kantipak’s car was hit by a public bus in front of Soi Sukhumvit 26. An argument between Kantipak and the bus driver soon ensued, escalating when Kantipak hit the driver in the face with a rock.

    Kantipak then returned to his car, and as a crowd started to gather around his vehicle, slammed his vehicle into the bus stop, killing bus conductor Saichon Luangsaeng and injuring a number of others.

    For his legal defense, Kantipak said he was suffering from mental illness and unable to control himself when the incident took place. His insanity plea was rejected by the Court of First Instance in 2009, which sentenced him to 10 years in prison, but was later accepted by the Court of Appeals in 2013, which handed down a suspended jail term of two years and one month.

    The victim’s family appealed the verdict, and today the Supreme Court reversed the previous court’s ruling that found Kantipak to be mentally unstable.

    According to the Supreme Court, the fact that Kantipak conversed with the bus driver, police officers and other witnesses minutes before the altercation took place, and that he attempted to drive away from the scene proved Kantipak was in control of himself at the time.

    The court also argued that Kantipak was also somehow allowed to drive by his family, in spite of the claimed history mental illness.

    “The court has considered the circumstances, age, history, behavior, mental state and environment of the defendant. The court deemed it inappropriate to suspend the punishment on charge of premeditated murder, which has been suspended by the Court of Appeals,” the verdict read.

    Kantipak, who showed no obvious sign of emotion as he listened to the verdict with his lawyer, was immediately taken away to prison after the judges finished the read-out.

    Kerdphol Kaewkerd, a lawyer who represented the dead bus conductor’s family, told reporters he felt two years in prison was too lenient, in light of the 10 years Kantipak initially received.

    “But the case is now considered closed. We have to accept the court’s judgment. We are satisfied,” Kerdphol said. “What we can do now is to forgive him, and we forgive him. We did our best and won justice for the deceased and her daughter.”

    He added that Kantipak’s family had also paid the victim’s family around 2.2 million baht in compensation.

    And good for them.

    I can't even imagine what a testing, trying, stressful ordeal that must have been on top of already having lost a loved one to the senseless actions of this prat.

    TiT. We are elated at the fact the twat has actually received a punishment (and who knows if he will actually ever do it), while looking the other way that the sentence is manifestly inadequate for a murderer who also deliberately maimed other people for life, using his daddys Mercedes Benz as a weapon. Wonder what would have happened to some other scum that might have done the same thing in a beaten up toyota pickup?

    Two years sentence on conviction of premeditated murder and attempted murder is a step in the right direction?
    Frankly, even for the Thai this mockery of justice is nauseatingly deviant behavior.
    They simply haven't a clue just how fucked up their shitty little society truly is. Medieval and barbaric. And they have the fucking effrontery to bang up two Antipodeans immediately on detection because of a two year old fucking unpaid restaurant bill??
    The country is a fucking zoo.

    Self control problems brought on by overbearing arrogance and a complete lack of empathy. He knows his daddy's money will buy him out of any fuck up that he stumbles into.

    That, and the emotional maturity of a Western 10 year old seems to affect many males in this culture of all income levels.

    I consistently find that the most intelligent boys at school where I teach are also the most polite and least arrogant.

    Cheers mate.

    About a month or so back I think? Nobody was more surprised than me. I'm still waiting for someone to wake up and realise it was an administrative error.

    Thoroughly deserved- he was driving a Dodge Avenger. At least in Thailand you get promoted to the afterlife in a nice car like a Mercedes, or the red bull Ferrari.
