Sentencing has been adjourned to Dec. 13 for a Red Deer man convicted on Friday of dangerous driving causing death.
Gordon Lepore, 56, was convicted by Justice Dennis Thomas in Edmonton Court of Queen’s Bench in connection with a fatal collision on May 3, 2011.
Court heard that Lepore was on Hwy 63, heading north toward Fort McMurray, when his one-ton pickup truck crossed the centre line and struck a southbound vehicle driven by Maria Aquino.
After hearing from several witnesses, including those who saw the vehicle drifting back and forth across the highway, the judge determined that Lepore had fallen asleep at the wheel.
Sentencing has been adjourned to Oct. 4 to allow for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.
