    Businessman sentenced to four years for DUI fatal accident

    The Supreme Court has upheld the 4-year prison sentence handed down by a lower court to a businessman who, under the influence of methamphetamines, rammed his Mercedes Benz into the rear of another car, causing it to catch fire and killing its 2 student occupants.


    In confirming the Appeal Courtís verdict, the Supreme Court rejected a plea for leniency from the defendant, Mr. Jenphob Veeraporn, who claimed he graduated with a Masterís degree from university abroad, was an executive of several companies and had made numerous contributions to society. He also claimed that he entered the monkhood for two months after the fatal accident, which took place on the Pahonyothin highway in Bang Pa-in district of Ayutthaya on March 13th, 2016.


    Veeraporn drove his Mercedes at high speed and rammed into the rear of a Ford car, containing the two students, Mr. Krisana Thavorn and Ms. Thanthapat Horsaengchai. The force of the impact caused the Ford vehicle to catch fire, incinerating both young people.


    The court of first instance found Veeraporn guilty of reckless driving and causing the death of others, sentencing him to two years and six months in prison. Prosecutors appealed the sentence in the Appeals Court, which found him guilty of driving under the influence of drug, causing death to other people, and sentenced him to six years, commuted to four years due to his useful testimony.

    that was nice of them.

    but what about the two kids he incinerated when he was driving on meth?

    would be interesting to know how many days behind bars this guy actually does....and what type of prison it is.

    He became a monk ffs, what more could you ask for!

    How about he pays the victims' families what the two kids would've earned through their lives, add a bit for killing them, another 500 bt or whatever it is nowadays for being high on illegal drugs and unfit to drive, and top up with a couple of years for taking the piss with this monk scam.

    Then investigate how much he paid to whoever it was at the "court of first instance" that sentenced him to 30 months!

    I daresay since he has already paid x amount to the families, has said sorry a lot in public contrition and hung out in a temple for a couple of months in spiritual atonement, he is probably really quite confused by the need for a prison sentence given he is clearly a better man than most others because his karma made him rich and well born.

    Quite outrageous such a fine man should spend time in prison with mere criminals.

    Still, I daresay he will enjoy the usual parole benefits accorded such folk in due course and will be back behind the wheel of a new Mercedes in no time.
