It's about time that restitution goes to the victims and/or their families. They might see the sentence as light with regard to his lack of good judgment and loss of two lives.

5 YEARS? He should have gotten 20 years. He's no different than a person with a gun. When you drive drunk, it's a person who should be put away for a long time. If the present laws don't allow longer sentences, they should be changed.
