Drunk driver Florence Chatelard was sentenced last year to two and a half years for causing the death of Biel Llull in September 2016. The deadline for the Frenchwoman to enter prison was the fifth of this month. She has yet to present herself. Unless the court decides to suspend the sentence, a warrant for her arrest will be issued.

Florence Chatelard had been drinking heavily prior to the incident near Sineu when she knocked down and killed cyclist Biel Llull. The 45-year-old was a police officer in Palma. He had been out for an evening's bike ride with his young son.

A man killed, a family wrecked and the police service minus an officer and the judge dishes out this twaddle. I'm not surprised the police here don't bother much about crime, after all what's the point, if this is the result? Pathetic.

Spanish courts are a joke. This woman was drunk , she had no insurance and killed a cyclist. The "court" sentences her to 30 months and allows her to present herself to jail ..WTF ? She should not have seen the outside from the minute she was sentenced. Then 2 men who robbed gambling machines are given the same 30 month sentence....makes you wonder the value these judges place on a life.

Full disclosure: I'm not a lawyer. That said, where I'm from, when the judge bangs the gavel, the court cops cuff you and march your sorry ass straight to prison right then and there. The use here of kid gloves is epidemic.

Has the court gone mad. A further article in this paper reports the 30 month jail sentence given for robbing gambling machines and direct to jail. A so has lost his father killed in a road accident,yet she can have FOUR months off prior to starting her 30 month sentence,guess what she hasn’t turned up so maybe the sentence will be suspended.So sorry for the family of the killed policeman
