A Quebec man who killed a toddler with his car on the day he turned 18 will not be going to prison.
Brandon Pardi was found guilty last December of dangerous driving causing the death of three-year-old Bianca Leduc in 2007.
His case gained national notoriety when he fought to be tried as a juvenile. However, Canada's highest court refused to hear his case.
A Quebec judge sentenced Mr. Pardi today to two years less a day to be served in the community with the first year under house arrest with conditions.
Mr. Pardi was charged and tried as an adult.
The defence argued that community service or a fine would be sufficient punishment, while the Crown was seeking a four-year prison term.
Mr. Pardi has appealed the guilty verdict.
Mr. Pardi was driving without a valid licence when he lost control while speeding with a friend in a residential area, striking the other boy's car and careening into the yard, killing a three-year-old girl as she hung Halloween decorations on her babysitter's lawn.
