Jan 14, 2013 - DATE SET FOR HOLUBOWICH SENTENCING (Grande Prairie Warriors case)


The sentencing for Brenden Holubowich is set for 9:30 a.m. on Feb. 26 in the Grande Prairie Court of Queen’s Bench.

The original sentencing date of Feb. 22 was bumped back because no judge was available that day, said Holubowich’s defence lawyer Chris Millsap, outside the courtroom Monday.

Holubowich, 22, is facing 16 charges in connection with the deaths of Vincent Stover, 16, Matthew Deller, 16, Walter Borden-Wilkins, 15, and Tanner Hildebrand, 15, and serious injuries to Zach Judd in a two-vehicle crash on the Correction Line, south of Grande Prairie, on Oct. 22. 2011.

Judd continues to recover. He was 15 at the time of the crash.

A two-week trial had been set for Dec. 2 to Dec. 13, 2013, but Millsap released those dates in early December 2012.

Crown prosecutor Jason Neustaeter was not on hand at the Grande Prairie courthouse on Monday, as an agent appeared on his behalf, but he previously said he expects the sentencing to take at least half a day with many victim impacts statements to be heard.

Holubowich is charged with four counts of impaired driving causing death, four counts of dangerous operation of a vehicle causing death, four counts of impaired driving causing death, one count of impaired driving causing bodily harm, one count of dangerous operation of a vehicle causing bodily harm, one count of impaired driving causing bodily harm, and one count of failure to stop at the scene of an accident.
