Man responsible for crash that killed RCMP officer pleads guilty to 2nd drunk driving collision
2nd crash took place month-and-a-half after Langford, B.C., collision that killed Const. Sarah Beckett
Kenneth Fenton, who is currently serving time for his role in the death of RCMP Const. Sarah Beckett, has pleaded guilty to drunk driving in a second crash that took place May 22, 2016 — a month-and-a-half after the collision that killed Beckett.
The charges to which he pleaded guilty include causing an accident which resulted in bodily harm while under the influence as well as dangerous driving causing bodily harm by failing to stop during a police pursuit.
He is expected to be sentenced July 3 in Duncan, B.C.
Fenton is currently serving time in relation to the fatal crash that killed Const. Sarah Beckett.
In that crash, he had been drinking heavily and was speeding through a red light when his truck slammed into Beckett's police cruiser in Langford, B.C., in April 2016.
Beckett, 32, had recently returned from maternity leave after having her second son. She died in hospital shortly after the crash.
Fenton pleaded guilty in that crash and was sentenced last July to four years in prison and was handed a five-year driving ban upon release.
