The Saint-Malo criminal court (Ille-et-Vilaine) sentenced a 30-year-old man to three years in prison on Tuesday, two of which were suspended.

The 30-year-old, whose trial took place on September 20 after numerous dismissals, was tried for his responsibility in a road accident dating back to October 2016 in the town of Lanrelas (Côtes-d'Armor), near Dinan.
