EDMONTON -- A man who crashed his SUV into an Edmonton restaurant patio, killing a young boy, has been sentenced to four months in jail.
Richard Suter, who is 65, had pleaded guilty to failing to provide a breath sample after the child's death.
Two-year-old Geo Mounsef was having dinner with his parents and baby brother when he was pinned by the vehicle in May 2013.
Police originally charged Suter with impaired driving causing death, as witnesses said he smelled of alcohol, was stumbling and slurring his words.
Court also heard from other witnesses who believed he was sober.
Suter is suspended from driving for 30 months after he is release.
