You are 'every road user's nightmare': Judge

Judge Laurie Levy said he was "struggling to understand" how such an intelligent school teacher could "selfishly" decide to use methylamphetamine when its negative effects were so widely known in the community.

"I have pondered at length why it was you even contemplated taking the drug, let alone deciding to get in the car and drive," he said.

He also highlighted that one of the lesser-known effects of the drug was the need to fall asleep, saying there were a frightening number of meth users on the roads.

"The frightening reality is that you represent every road user's nightmare," he told Asplin.

Judge Levy said he had received numerous references which described Asplin as ordinarily a selfless character and of being of a caring and compassionate person, with a high degree of professionalism.

He also noted that Asplin had written a letter of apology to Mr Shute in which she said she truly wished that she had died rather than Ms Dunstall.

Judge Levy said Mr Shute had been left devastated by the death of his partner, and in his victim impact statement said he had lost the will to live.

Mr Shute also continued to suffer from his injuries and he said it was painful for him to walk.

Judge Levy said "the ripple effect" of what happened on the day of the crash was going to be enormous, affecting not only Mr Shute and his family, but many other people including the police and ambulance officers who attended the scene.

He sentenced Asplin to five years in jail. She will have to serve three of those before she can be released on parole.

Her driver's licence was also disqualified for five years.
