Kenneth Fenton receives 4 yrs in connection to Mountie's death

 

The man who pleaded guilty to drunk driving in the collision that killed a West Shore Mountie has been sentenced to four years in prison.

Kenneth Jacob Fenton is also handed a five year's driving prohibition.

 Provincial court Judge Ronald Lamperson says no sentence he could impose can bring back Beckett or address the pain her family and friends suffer.

Fenton pleaded guilty to impaired driving causing death and dangerous driving causing death in the April 2016 crash that resulted in the death of Constable Sarah Beckett.

The court heard during Fenton's sentencing hearing that he had a blood-alcohol level three times the legal limit when he ran a red light, hitting Beckett's cruiser.

The crown had been asking for a 3-5 year jail sentence while the defense wanted 2-3 years.
