The Crown is looking for a six year sentence in the case of a Winnipeg truck driver who failed to slow down in a construction zone resulting in the deaths of three teenagers from Carrot River.
Sentencing arguments happened in Melfort Tuesday for Normand Lavoie.
Earlier this year, he pleaded guilty to three counts of dangerous driving causing death in the accident which took the lives of 14 year old Justin Gaja, 15 year old Kristian Skalicky and 17 year old Carter Stevenson.
They were returning home from a football camp in May of 2015 when a semi being driven by Lavoie rear-ended the vehicle which was stopped in a construction zone on Highway 6 near Spalding.
The crash also seriously injured a highways flagperson.
While the Crown wants a six year sentence followed by a nine year driving ban, the defence is asking for a sentence of two years plus a day.
The matter has been adjourned until September 11.
