What sentence should Ramage get?
Wed, October 10, 2007

A jury has found former NHL player Rob Ramage guilty on all five charges he faced in connection with a fatal 2003 crash that killed a former Chicago Blackhawks player Keith Magnuson. That includes a guilty verdict on the most serious charge, impaired driving causing death.

The prosecution said scientific evidence showed Ramage had up to four times the legal blood-alcohol limit at the time of the crash, though none of the hundreds of people at an earlier reception could say he had a single drink.

Rough day for Ramage

Lighten up, Jimmy. He's responsible for the death of a good friend of his. He's not an habitual drunkard. He has a conscience, and his conscience will probably never ease up on him. He is not a repeat offender, and I seriously doubt if he's a risk to re-offend. He needs to suffer some sort of penalty, but I don't see time in jail being very useful. Community service, like going around talking to young athletes about personal responsibility might be a better idea. As I recall, Dan Heatly was driving a car a team mate got killed in, and he didn't serve time, did he? Think of all the good a guy like Heatly could accomplish if he'd talk to some of the young hotshots who think they own the world, and they are indestructible. What Heatly and Ramage did was stupid, not wicked. Restitution, not punishment, is what's called for.

What he should get and what he will get are 2 different things.

He should go to prison for at least 10 years.

Since he is a celebrity and former captain of the Leafs he will no doubt get a slap on the wrist just like other drunk drivers are getting these days.
