The popular vote with 30 per cent and 430 votes was "Crown is seeking 10 years followed by a 10 year driving ban and that seems right."

Following that with 22 per cent and 305 votes was on the opposite spectrum that said "No jail time; he has to live with what he did for the rest of his life."

With 19 per cent and 273 votes was "Defence is seeking one-and-a-half to four-and-a-half-years and that seems right."

With 16 per cent and 219 votes was "More than 10 years," while "More than five and less than 10 years" took 13 per cent and 183 votes.

There was a total of 1,410 votes. Remember this is not a scientific poll.
