Jason Adrien Stephens

Home city: Mississauga, Ontario
Age: 20
Date of crash: May 5, 1996

Jason stayed after his shift to have a drink and conversation with his brother Chris and friends. Jason, his brother and friends each left at different times using various means to arrive home – taxi and designated driver. Jason used the public transit. He never made it home. At about 12:50am Jason, a pedestrian crossing at the lights, was struck and killed by the impact of a van driven by an impaired driver. The driver’s blood alcohol level was 1½ times the legal limit – Jason’s was .05 (same as a half a bottle of beer).

The sentence: Jason got life. The drunk driver, a $1,000 fine and one-year probation.
