Brendan Holubowich gets full parole after serving 15 months for fatal crash
Victims were all members of the Grande Prairie Composite High School Warriors football team
The man convicted in the 2011 deaths of four high school football players in a car crash near Grande Prairie, Alta., has been granted full parole.
Brendan Holubowich, 24, was sentenced to three years behind bars for causing the crash involving his pickup truck and a car carrying five members of the Grande Prairie Composite High School Warriors football team.
Vincent Stover, 16, Walter Borden-Wilkins, 15, Tanner Hildebrand, 15, and Matthew Deller, 16, all died in the crash, while Zachary Judd spent weeks in a coma, eventually recovering from brain injuries and a fractured skull.
At the time of the crash, Holubowich was driving 120 km/h in an 80 km/h zone.
Originally charged with drunk driving, Holubowich later pleaded guilty to four counts of dangerous driving causing death and one count of dangerous driving causing injury.
At the time of his sentencing, the families of the teenagers left the courthouse angry that the judge didn't impose a stiffer sentence.
Holubowich was given day parole in the fall of 2013 after serving just over seven months behind bars.
The mother of one of the victims visited the Edmonton Area and Alberta North District Parole Office Wednesday to deliver a victim impact statement. She did not want to speak with reporters.
Holubowich had previously told the parole board that he would live with his fianceé, and currently holds down a full-time job. He is rated as a low risk to reoffend.
His full parole becomes effective June 15.
Grande Prairie is 460 kilometres northwest of Edmonton.
