Westerham: Sentencing of elderly driver David Lord for killing grandmother in Costa Coffee crash I post this here as I struggle with the "Sentence" given out. Had the accused stood up day 1 and pleaded guilty, having said, It was me, I got confused! Then I could maybe understand the thinking behind this sentence. But he dd not. He repeatedly lied about what had happened, blaming the car, a medical episode, another distraction etc. I cannot help but think what if this were a younger man in the dock? It changes nothing, I know but?
