WINNIPEG— A Winnipeg police officer has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for killing a pedestrian.
Justin Holz pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing death and the Crown stayed other charges, including impaired driving.
Cody Severight was struck while crossing a street north of Winnipeg’s downtown in October 2017.
The 23-year-old was taken to hospital in critical condition but died of his injuries.
Winnipeg police said at the time that Holz was given a breathalyzer three to four hours after arresting officers suspected he might be impaired.
Holz was off-duty at the time.
