Archie Billard faces new driving charges

Archie Billard is in trouble with the law again.

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.
