Archie Billard faces new driving charges
Caused crash that killed teacher's aide in 2004
Archie Billard is in trouble with the law again.
The 22-year-old was arrested by police in downtown Halifax on Saturday and has been charged with several offences, including possession of a prohibited weapon, breach of probation and driving while disqualified.
Billard was 16 when he ran a red light in a stolen car — high on marijuana — and killed Theresa McEvoy on Oct. 14, 2004.
He was convicted of dangerous driving causing the death of McEvoy, a teacher's aide. Two months ago, Billard was released from prison after serving a 4½-year prison sentence in her death.
Billard is under a 10-year driving ban.
In October 2010, Billard was sent back to prison after the National Parole Board revoked his statutory release.
Billard had been released under a series of conditions in February but has not complied with those conditions, the parole board said in an Oct. 20 decision.
