The Judge says the teen is already a ‘prisoner in his own body’ because he was rendered a quadriplegic.
A 19-year-old found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of a York Region Police officer will not spend any time in custody.
Justice Alex Sosna says the teen, who was rendered a quadriplegic in a crash that killed Const. Garrett Styles, is already serving a life sentence because he is a prisoner in his own body.
Sosna also found that the teen, who cannot be named, has been rehabilitated.
He sentenced the teen to a conditional supervision order for nine years.
The teen was 15 when he was driving a van, with no licence, which was involved in a crash north of Toronto that killed Styles.
Styles was standing beside a minivan during a traffic stop in East Gwillimbury in June 2011, when police say the vehicle suddenly accelerated and dragged him about 300 metres before losing control and rolling on top of him.
