An arrest warrant has been issued for a woman who was drunk behind the wheel of a stolen truck when she caused the deaths of two Saskatoon teens.
In an emailed statement, Correctional Service Canada (CSC) confirmed Cheyann Peeteetuce is the subject of an arrest warrant. She was released from prison in May, having served two-thirds of a sentence imposed in June 2015. By law, most offenders are released after completing two-thirds of their sentence.
CSC refused to explain why the warrant was issued for Peeteetuce and declined to confirm whether she’d breached conditions of her release or even to list what her release conditions were, citing privacy laws.
Peeteetuce sped through a stop sign at Avenue M and 22nd Street on May 5, 2014. At the time, she was trying to flee from a police officer who attempted to pull her over after finding the truck she was driving had been reported stolen.
The truck collided with a car carrying J.P. Haughey, Sarah Wensley, both 17, and Kara Mitsuing, 16. Haughey and Wensley were killed. Mitsuing was seriously hurt.
Peeteetuce pleaded guilty to charges including criminal negligence causing death and impaired driving. She was sentenced to six years, minus time served on remand awaiting trial and was subject to a 20-year driving ban.
