Tractor Driver Jailed Over Death Of Leeds Boy
A tractor driver who drank the equivalent of 13 pints of beer the night before he ran over and killed an 11-year-old boy on a farm in Leeds has been jailed for more than a year.
51 year old Gary Green, 51, was given a sentence of 16 months and two weeks in prison at Leeds Crown Court for health and safety violations which contributed to the death of Harry Whitlam at a farm near the city.
Green, from Wakefield, was more than two times the legal driving limit when the incident happened in August 2013.
He claimed he had drunk four pints in the pub the night before, followed by two cans at home.
But Judge Guy Kearl QC heard that an expert had concluded that Green must have consumed the equivalent of 13 pints of beer before going to bed at 2am.
Green was prosecuted under health and safety rather than road traffic law as he was on private land at the time of Harry's death.
A rapist who acted out his vile fantasies on a student he met through a dating app has been described as a "truly depraved individual'' and a "dangerous, perverted monster'' by police after he was jailed for 17 years.
