Dec 29, 2014 - DAY PAROLE CONTINUES FOR DRUNK DRIVER WHO KILLED CYCLIST [Elizabeth Sovis]

A 51-year-old Kensington man who was driving drunk when he killed an Alberta cyclist will continue his day parole under strict conditions.

Clarence Arnold Moase was granted day parole earlier this year, and in a recent ruling the Parole Board of Canada decided to continue it for another six months.

Moase was sentenced in 2012 to six years in prison after hitting Elizabeth Sovis with his van while she was cycling with her husband in P.E.I.

At the time Moase’s blood alcohol level was almost three times the legal limit. Moase had several previous convictions related to drunk driving and the parole board report noted he was an alcoholic.

In continuing the day parole, the board said Moase has participated in some programs, but had not yet taken part in everything available to him.

The board wrote that Moase indicated his intention to stop drinking, but it had no confidence he would be able to self-manage his risky behaviour of drinking and driving. The report also said Moase was making gradual progress and the board noted his plan to participate in further programming.

During the period of day parole, Moase will be prohibited from consuming, buying or possessing alcohol.

He is also banned from any establishment where the primary source of income comes from the sale or consumption of alcohol.

Moase was also given a lifetime driving ban when he was sentenced.
