The Rouxle Le Roux case has generated a lot of feelings throughout the country, but for some, the incident hits close to home.

Le Roux was sentenced to 11 months home detention last week after killing 15-year-old Nathan Kraatskow in a hit and run earlier this year. 

The 19-year-old has earned backlash over an apparent lack of remorse and her limited sentence.

Caller Chris phoned in to Andrew Dickens Afternoons today, and says that his family has been through a similar situation.

His son was killed by boy racers in Australia last year while crossing the road 

Chris said that they went to jail for two and half years, which doesn't change what happened but it made a difference.

He explains why he's so angry about this Le Roux case.
