An Ontario man who killed three young children and their grandfather in a rushing 2015 crash north of Toronto seeks freedom for the first time on Wednesday after three years of imprisonment.
Marco Muzzo was sentenced to 10 years in March 2016, after admitting his guilt for killing the children of Neville-Lake-Daniel, 9, brother Harrison 5, and two-year-old Milly and 65-year-old Gary Neville, in a crash driving drunk four months earlier.
The child's mother, Jennifer Neville-Lake, is expected to deliver an emotional impact statement to the victims as the board members decide whether to grant the king of the city, Ont., Some Freedom.
When the word of Muzzo's first exception was announced in August, Neville-Lake wrote a post on Facebook that called on supporters to inform the Canadian Parliamentary Council of how the story of her family "has influenced and changed you".
These letters will be examined by the board members when deciding whether to grant Muzzo's consolation.
More than 13,000 people also signed an online petition requesting the National Council of Conditions to refuse the request.
The letter requires Muzzo to pass the remainder of his sentence behind bars and members of the banning council "to make an example of him to prevent more DUI [driving under the influence] cases. "
"Stronger laws and consequences are going to help this," the report says.
Hearing held in Gravenhurst, Ont.
Muzzo will bid for conditional release at the Beaver Creek Foundation, a minimal security jail, in Gravenhurst, Ont., About 200 kilometers northeast of Toronto, at 9 am.
The day's release, according to the Canadian Correctional Service website, allows an offender to participate in community activities in preparation for full release or legal release.
Offenders on the day of limitation must return at night to a community based or half-house building unit.
4 dead, 2 injured in drunk driving drunk
Two other extended family members, their children's grandmother and their grandmother were also seriously injured in the September 2015 crash, which headlines all over Canada and led to many candles in the candles. A monument remains at the junction to honor the four victims.
Muzzo was drunk at the time of the crash. It was found to have a level of blood alcohol nearly three times the legal limit in Ontario, according to an agreed statement of facts.
The 29-year-old had just returned home from the University of Miami on the weekend. He admitted having four alcoholic beverages in the private jet after a party night. He took his jeep from the parking lot at Pearson Airport and went off, taking farm wings at his home in Vaughan, Ont.
The SUV hit 85 km / h, well above the published speed limit when Muzzo pulled the stop signal and was at the tip of the minivan driver with the Neville-Lake family on that hot and sunny afternoon. The three brothers went to their homeland after an overnight visit with their grandparents.
Muzzo drove his vehicle to "over speed", according to the conviction report. He fell short of injuries and could not stand in the conflict scene, according to the police report. He was married next month.
The parole committee weighs the risk
Muzzo did not have criminal convictions – but he had a "long" record of previous driving violations, including 10 speeding convictions over a period of 10 years from 2003 to 2013, the judge wrote in court documents.
A 12-year driving ban will also start once a temporary ban is issued.
The Temporary Order Council will also hear from the prison guard who will make recommendations about why the perpetrator deserves or does not deserve the ban.
Board members, who are equipped with psychiatric assessments, reports from Correctional Services and psychologists, and any progress reports, will ask Muzzo questions. Asylum seekers can appear in person or through a video link.

Muzzo was listed as the director of Marel Contractors, which has works across Toronto, including those in Liberty Village and Adelaide Hotel, formerly called Trump International Hotel and Tower.
He will be eligible for full release in May and legal release in June 2022, says Canadian Correctional Service.
