A former Regina Pats captain will spend two years in jail after pleading guilty in a fatal crash.
Karry Biette was responsible for a car crash that killed a 53-year-old man and seriously injured another passenger in Estevan in October 2015.
According to reports at the time, the vehicle Biette was driving left the road as it was entering Estevan and hit a tree. There were two passengers in Biette’s vehicle — one died and the other was hurt.
Biette was originally charged with impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing bodily harm, dangerous driving causing death, dangerous driving causing harm and criminal negligence. On Friday, he pleaded guilty to the latter three charges.
Biette was given a three-year driving ban but was given credit for time he didn’t drive since the crash, leaving him with a ban of just over one year. He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of $200 for both charges.
Biette played for the Pats from 1990 to 1994. He went on to coach the Estevan Bruins from 2005 to 2011.
