Cpl. Benjamin "Monty" Robinson was found guilty of obstruction of justice earlier this year for his actions following a fatal collision with a motorcyclist in Tsawwassen.
He is scheduled for sentencing in New Westminster Supreme Court on Friday.
Robinson was charged
following the Oct. 25, 2008 crash that killed Orion Hutchinson. The 21-year-old died after a collision between his motorcycle and Robinson's Jeep at about 10: 15 p.m. at the corner of 6th Avenue and Gilchrist Drive.
Following the crash, Robinson left the scene with his children and walked to his home a couple of blocks away. He drank two shots of vodka before returning to the scene.
During the trial, Robinson told the court he drank the vodka without thinking because it gave him comfort.
An addictions specialist testified during trial that in 2008 Robinson was an alcoholic and his actions were consistent with someone suffering from alcohol dependence.
In March, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Janice Dillon found Robinson's actions deliberate to avoid an impaired charge and convicted him.
