Brandon Pardi arrested but released
Brandon Pardi, the young man convicted of dangerous driving causing the death of 3-year-old Bianca Leduc on Hallowe'en 2007 in Île Perrot, was arrested last week for breach of conditions.
But he was released because his conditions have changed.
Just over a month ago, Pardi was sentenced to two years less a day in the community, including a 24-hour house arrest during the first year.
So when police arrested Pardi following a bar brawl in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue during the wee hours of last Friday morning, they thought he was breaching that condition.
But since the crown is appealing the sentence, it's been suspended. That only kicked in last Wednesday.
"It takes a little while for the police to have the new conditions on their computer," his lawyer Pierre Joyal told CJAD News.
Those new conditions are actually Pardi's pre-sentence conditions, including not being able to drive, keeping the peace and being on good behaviour.
No one filed a complaint about the bar fight so there were no charges.
Pardi is appealing his conviction. It will be several months before either appeal will be heard.
