Jason Ingle's former partner's anger's over death crash driver's sentence




The partner of a man who was killed when he was knocked off his bike by a car has branded the teenage driver's sentence "disgusting".

Jane Paul (51) is outraged that driver Hadley Fisher (19) was banned from driving for two years and ordered to complete 300 hours of community service after admitting causing death by careless driving when he collided with Jason Ingle, who died as a result of his injuries in February 2017.

Jane, who lives in Pinchbeck, is also incensed that she was not told when Fisher would be sentenced, as she wanted to be at the hearing.

"I wanted to be there to get closure, but I can't get that now, can I," said Jane. "My family liaison officer could only think that it's because he changed his plea, that's why no one was notified."

To add to her pain, Jane has been unable to formally register Jason's death, as the court case had to conclude and the coroner receive the court papers before a full death certificate can be issued.

"Jay [Jason]was sent to prison for four months for theft and I was given 240 hours' community service when I stole a bottle of whiskey - so how can he [Fisher] only get 300 hours when he has killed someone?

"At the time, I felt sorry for Hadley, but that's when Jason was still alive. I still feel bad for Hadley - this is going to hang over him for the rest of his life.

"But if the boot was on the other foot, Jason would have got the maximum sentence, I know he would."

The maximum sentence for causing death by careless driving is five years' imprisonment.
