Kenneth Jacob Fenton, the man who was sentenced to four years in prison in the death of West Shore RCMP Const. Sarah Beckett, has pleaded guilty in another drinking-driving crash that occurred a month after the Mountie’s Death.
On Monday in a Duncan courtroom, Fenton pleaded guilty to two charges including driving over .08 and causing an accident resulting in bodily harm to his girlfriend.
The charges related to a crash on May 22, 2016. On that date, police discovered a green 1997 Chevy pickup truck that had rolled over on Goldstream Heights Drive in the Malahat area. Two people were inside, including Fenton.
The crash was just over a month after Fenton rammed into Beckett’s RCMP cruiser while driving drunk and speeding, killing the mother of two.
Fenton is now serving a four-year sentence for impaired driving causing the death of Beckett in April 2016. A date for the sentencing in connection with the May 2016 collision will be set on June 12.
