    "Ms Connally said a paramedic crew witnessed the crash "entirely by chance" and came to the aid of two passengers at the scene as the defendants fled.  Lawrence and Bennett, 23, returned to the scene about 45 minutes later and were arrested."
     
    Very disappointing to hear that they ran away from the scene, knowing what (and who) they were leaving behind. Shows a like of moral fibre. I hear people saying 'it's over, lets move on etc...'  Personally I don't think I would ever see either of these two players in the same light (prior to the incident) again. I would be happier if they were no longer at the club. Just my opinion.

    I think depriving Lawrence & Bennett of their XBox's is a harsh punishment

    If they consider themselves lucky to not get banged up and take the punishment then let's all move on.
    Banned from driving (I think they'll both have to take the test again) and they'll be lucky to get insurance on a dacia sandero.
    But, the consiqences will still be there for Keogh.
    Could've been so much worse for all parties. Cars are just lumps of metal, people are precious.

    They have been very very stupid, irresponsible and reckless. They have been punished according to law and again by the club
    they entered a guilty plea.
    for me it’s end of story .. I might have felt differently if a bystander had been hurt or killed (but then the punishments would have been rightfully different )
    why allow rehabilitation under someone else’s auspices? Assuming they are contrite it has to be right they as “our”players “we” give them the chance to validate their contrition and do penance ( crikey that sounds a bit churchy - but there’s solid logic in it) 
    A repeat offence would change my mind, but as of where we are now then as far as I am concerned it’s “right lads, get your heads down, graft, do your penance, learn, give back and come back a better person and player.

    Do keep going to final whistle - we love letting late goals in.... Much to rage of many a Derby fan.
    If we show up, decide we're having a good day I think we can, but if throw in less than 100% you'll probably beat us.

    I really hope both of them use the time to reflect and to realise how their lives might have panned out. 
    We all make mistakes in life. It's what you learn from them which is important.

    I think if you were compelled to give up 180 hours of your life doing community service you might find it a bit less "pathetic".

    yep lucky especially for leaving the scene.
    refusal is whole new level of offence and like you say that ended up suspended, internet says;
    Under Section 7 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 it is a criminal offence to fail to provide a specimen for analysis, without reasonable excuse, when required to do so after driving / attempting to drive.
    Anyone convicted of this offence will be classed as a high risk offender. High risk offenders are required to take and pass a DVLA medical before a driving licence will be issued to them upon expiration of their driving disqualification.
    WHAT ARE THE PENALTIES FOR FAILING TO PROVIDE A SPECIMEN FOR ANALYSIS?
    The penalty imposed upon conviction of failing to provide a specimen for analysis while driving or attempting to drive will depend upon the circumstances surrounding the offence.
    The court will determine the offenders culpability and the harm caused as well as any aggravating and/or mitigating factors before passing sentence.
    What is the minimum penalty for failing to provide a specimen for analysis while driving or attempting to drive?
    A 12 month driving disqualification and a band B fine (75 - 125% of relevant weekly income) is the minimum penalty imposed for this offence at Magistrates court.
    What is the maximum penalty for failing to provide a specimen for analysis while driving or attempting to drive?
    A lengthy driving disqualification of 5 years or more and a 26 week custodial sentence is the maximum penalty imposed for this offence at Magistrates court.

    It does seem odd that someone with a drink problem is picked for a championship football team and that someone grieving and alcohol dependent is left at a social event with their car keys.

    Given the aggravating factors they were probably lucky to get away without getting a short custodial.
    They are clearly not the sharpest tools in the box, but its done and it’s time to draw a line under it and let Cocu manage their involvement.
    Clearly Lawrence needs to be helped, given what’s come out of this, hopefully he’s working with the club to get the professional help he needs!

    So, much of the speculation regarding other charges is BS.
    However the failure to stop at the scene is quite an aggregating factor.
    Not as awful as I'd feared, but, then, I'd feared a number of things may also have been in evidence which they were not.

    Agreed, let's move on.
    These 2 will have to live with what they have done everyday at least for the next 2 years (not having a car will be a reminder, Keogh will be a constant reminder).
    On the pitch, you just know that opposing fans will not let it lie.
    So now let's draw that line and give our support and help them rehabilitate.

    Got off light there in my opinion.

    Hope others at the club take note of this and realise if they are stupid enough to get themselves involved in something like this that they may not be as lucky.

    They might kill someone & their sentence could be much harsher.
