LAVAL – Micheline Boisvert doesn’t hold back when she talks about Anthony Alfieri.

She thinks the 31-year-old should spend the rest of his life in prison for causing the death of her son Leonardo Facchino as well a second friend, Corinne Gauthier-Giambona.

“He’s still the same irresponsible guy today that he was five years ago,” says Boisvert.

    At the Laval Courthouse Friday, she became livid when she heard the prosecutor’s sentence recommendation: four years in jail, and a six year driving restriction follow his release.

    “I find that’s not enough,” Boisvert said.

    “Even if it was 100 years it wouldn’t be enough. Four years is ridiculous.”

    On February 21, 2010, Alfieri was behind the wheel of a car that slammed into a lamp post on De La Concorde Boulevard in Laval.

    At a pre-sentence hearing Friday, the court was told Alfieri was drunk, high on marijuana and speeding at the time of the crash.

    An expert estimates he struck the pole at close to 100 kilometres an hour.

    The impact was so powerful it split the vehicle in two.

    Alfieri left the scene of the crash, leaving his two passengers to die.

    Frank Facchino, the father of victim Leonardo Facchino, was one of three parents that presented victim impact statements to the court.

    “I miss him a lot, he was a great kid,” Facchino told Global News.

    “He was always there to help Anthony and Anthony let him down.”

    Suzanne Gauthier, the mother of the second victim, says the hearing brought back terrible memories.

    “We want to move on, but we can’t. We’re never out of this,” Gauthier said.
