Apr 21, 2017 - ALBERTA MAN DENIED PAROLE FOR DRUNKEN CRASH THAT KILLED THREE YOUNG MEN


According to one of the victim’s mothers, who was in court to watch the parole hearing, Jonathan Pratt has been denied both full and day parole.

He’s the man who was sentenced to eight years behind bars for killing Bradley Arsenault, Kole Novak and Thaddeus Lake near Beaumont in 2011.

Bradley’s mother Sheri Arsenault said that Pratt still didn’t show any remorse.

“I think that could be a big part of why he was denied,” Arsenault explained. “He referred to them once as individuals throughout six of hours of questioning. It’s as if he doesn’t have the insight yet, and I think possibly never will, of what he actually did that night.”

Arsenault said she feels justice was served with the decision.

She also said she was granted a special privilege to watch Pratt as she gave her impact statement.

“It was good to be able to see his emotion, and there was none. But it’s something that you want to see for yourself.”

Arsenault said she fully expects Pratt to appeal.

And if he does, she’ll be there.

“It’s really all we can do, not just for everyone out there (like) other mothers in my shoes, but it’s all we can do for Bradley. Is to continue to be his voice, continue to stand up for what we believe is right. And we would, we would come back in a heartbeat.”

Pratt has served two-and-a-half years of his eight year sentence.

He was convicted of impaired driving causing death in 2014, after he slammed into the young men’s car going almost 200 kilometres per hour in 2011.
