WINNIPEG – Adam Langan was sentenced to 4.5 years minus a pretrial credit of 17 months on Thursday for impaired driving causing death.

Judge Kelly Moar sentenced Langan in a historic live broadcast where Langan could be seen as he was sentenced. For the first time since Manitoba began allowing cameras in some court proceedings earlier this year, the image of a suspect was permitted to be broadcast. Langan showed no emotion as Judge Kelly delivered his sentence.

“What happened in this case was not an accident,” Moar said.

Langan drove a Ford Ranger north on McPhillips at 123 kilometres per hour on Aug. 24, 2013, before it crashed into other vehicles at William Street.

Doreen Chaikowsky, 71, was killed in the seven-car pileup.

Moar noted that Langan had twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system, he had also consumed cocaine, and was belligerent after the crash.

“Upon exiting the vehicle, he showed no concern for those he caused harm,” Moar said, also noting that Langan has been assessed as a “high risk to reoffend.” Langan is also prohibited for driving for 10 years after his release from prison.

Chaikowsky’s family was in court for the sentencing, and later expressed anger at the sentence.

“Justice has not been served,” son Jonas Chaikowsky told reporters outside court. “Three years in prison time served my mom she was 72 but she would have lived to a hundred she was healthy the laws need to change that’s all I need to say its not fair, say to someone you can go out and drink a mickey and run somebody over and get out of jail in four years, well everybody can commit murder then.”
