Court Told Crystal Meth Can Benefit A Driver

2 posts in this topic

A drugged motorist who seriously hurt a young pedestrian has been cleared of dangerous driving after two expert witnesses suggested methylamphetamine can help drivers.

 

Mother-of-three Leah Lenarczyk, 39, had taken a mixture of drugs when she missed a red light in Adelaide and struck the schoolboy.

The 12-year-old suffered multiple injuries, including a collapsed lung and a fractured skull.

Lenarczyk was acquitted of driving dangerously at South Australian District Court and convicted of the lesser charge of driving without due care.

Judge Barry Beazley said the prosecution had not proven methylamphetamine, also known as crystal meth and ice, had affected her driving.

"I am positively satisfied that the accused was not so affected by methylamphetamine that she was incapable of effective control of her motor vehicle," he said.

"There was no evidence in the driving leading up to the collision of any overtly poor driving, veering across the road, high speed or otherwise."

The court heard Lenarczyk's three children, aged six, eight and 10, were in her car when the accident happened.

I think that judge and the two professional witnesses should each hire a tweaker to be their official driver.  <shakes head>
