The Crown wants eight years in prison and a 15-year driving ban for Brent Parent.
The 42 year old Langley man was convicted of three charges including criminal negligence causing death in January.
21 year old Silas O’Brien was killed in March of 2008 in what has been described as a road rage incident.
The truck he was in was forced off the road on Hwy 16 in Aldergrove, and he was hit and killed when the other driver came back to the scene.
Parent pleaded not guilty, saying he didn’t know anyone was hit, until he heard news reports about it the next day.
However the prosecution maintained that Parent ran the truck off the road initially because the driver had “high-beamed” him.
During today’s sentencing hearing Crown brought up Parent’s 64 driving infractions, and said Parent was caught for going 108 km/h in a 60km/h zone on the two year anniversary of O’Brien’s death.
Defense says because of Parent’s remorse and lack of substance abuse he should serve 3 to 4 years.
