A convicted drunk driver who killed two Saskatoon teens in 2014 has been sentenced to an additional 30 days in prison after pleading guilty to breaching her release conditions.
Cheyann Peeteetuce had been released from prison in May after serving two-thirds of her six-year sentence for causing the deaths of Sarah Wensley and J.P. Haughey.
The two 17-year-olds were killed on May 5, 2014, when Peeteetuce sped onto 22nd Street while drunk behind the wheel of a stolen truck and trying to flee police.
An arrest warrant for Peeteetuce had been issued on Sept. 6 after she broke curfew conditions of her statutory release, court learned on Thursday.
She was apprehended by police on Monday at her mother’s house, where she was mandated to stay during her release.
Peeteetuce’s lawyer told the judge she had broken the curfew because she was babysitting for someone who failed to return home in time for her to get back to her mother’s residence for a police check.
Due to the breach, a parole board could decide Peeteetuce has to serve the remaining one-third of her original sentence — plus the 30 days for violating curfew.
