I was convicted of dangerous driving causing bodily harm and dangerous driving causing death due to missing a stop sign on a small country road that I was unfamiliar with that led to my car being struck. I had all extended family members in my car, and it was a momentary distraction that caused me to miss the stop sign and have the car accident. The driver of the other car also died from not wearing a seatbelt when his vehicle hit my car. The courts, seeing the extremely distressing circumstances of my extended family being killed, sentenced me to not go to prison, but to serve a conditional sentence while residing at my home and still being allowed to work etc.
The conviction occurred in Canada, but I would like to visit the UK.
