Killer driver Cameron Trivett. See SWNS story SWDRINK; The motorist who killed a Crediton boy he struck with a van after downing cider, gin and Jagermeister was given vital minutes to sober up because of a faulty breathalyser. Equipment used by police arresting Cameron Trivett had not been calibrated properly and Police sources say budget cuts are to blame. By the time Trivett was taken to an accurate machine he was below the drink drive limit. The Crown Prosecution Service has said it only had enough evidence to charge Trivett with the lesser charge of causing death by careless driving, rather than death by dangerous driving, which carries a sti?er penalty Trivett was jailed for four years-and may be released in two – for causing the death of 10- year-old Samuel Crocker.
