Driver under the influence of alcohol can be released within three years after almost killing wife Georgia Maloney

A drunk driver can be released in just three years due to an accident that nearly killed a young woman.

Georgia Maloney is still recovering after six months in the hospital and her family doesn’t believe the man responsible is sorry.

Benjamin Byrne-Quinn jailed for five years for crash in Collie, south of Perth leaving Maloney in intensive care.

The father of two could be free in three years.

It’s a punishment that Maloney’s family doesn’t think will deter others.

The 25-year-old was pinned to a brick wall by the stranger in 2020.

Byrne-Quinn had been arguing at the Crown Hotel when he deliberately backed into a group standing outside.

Alexis Tate, 18, was also hit, but her injuries were minor.

Byrne-Quinn went to the police, not to report what he had done, but to tell them that he had been attacked.

Maloney spent six months in hospital in Perth.

She underwent 16 surgeries and had to relearn herself to walk and talk.

The judge said Byrne-Quinn destroyed both Maloney’s life and his own within five seconds.

On Monday, Byrne-Quinn said sorry to Maloney, an apology she says is 20 months late.
