Defence lawyer wraps up arguments in alleged drunk driving case

The defence has wrapped up it's arguments in the Jonathan Pratt case. Pratt is the man accused of killing three young Beaumont men on Nov. 26, 2011. Late last month, Pratt pleaded not guilty to three counts each of impaired driving causing death, driving with a blood alcohol content over .08 causing death, and manslaughter.

Bradley Arseneault, Kole Novak - both 18 - and 22 year old Thaddeus Lake died after the vehicle in which they were riding was hit by an alleged drunk driver.

Arsenault's mother, Sheri, met with federal Justice Minister Peter McKay on Feb. 28 this year, and asked him to amend the Criminal Code to impose a minimum jail sentence on anyone convicted of drunk driving who ends up killing someone. McKay has promised reforms to the sentences for impaired drivers.
