Clint Flett drove drunk and badly injured not just himself, but also the wife he adores and a family friend.
A judge has refused to send him to jail for it.
And it was the right thing to do.
Not because drunk drivers who injure and maim people shouldn’t get a taste of the clink.
But because, in Flett’s case, jailing him would ultimately inflict more harm than accomplish anything by way of good.
