A London man was sentenced to 18 months in jail Friday, following an incident on the 401 in December of 2015.
Justice Jeanine LeRoy also sentenced Scott Renaud to three years probation, 100 hours of community work and a lifetime driving ban.
On Dec. 19, 2015, Middlesex OPP officer stopped a car near Wellington Road around 6:30 p.m., following a driving complaint.
Officers were about to perform a roadside screening test when the driver fled and rolled his car a short distance away.
Renaud plead guilty to impaired driving, flight from police, refusing a breath sample and breach of probation (consuming alcohol).
”You could have seriously injured someone else or killed someone else. This type of behavior in 2016…is unacceptable and will not be tolerated," said LeRoy.
While wiping away tears, Renaud told the court, ”I can’t drink period and I won’t drink anymore.”
Renaud had been in custody since his arrest in December of 2015.
Renaud was sentenced to two years in prison in February 2009 in the impaired driving crash that killed Jessica Ondejko, 22, from Amhertsburg.
It was revealed in court that Renaud was drunk and high on cocaine and painkillers at the time of the accident.
Renaud was also convicted of impaired driving in 1996.
