No bail for accused in hit and run on Sask. reserve
PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. — A judge has denied bail to a man accused of injuring five children in a hit and run while he was driving impaired on a Saskatchewan reserve. Colt Levi Morin, who is 20, faces several charges, including impaired driving causing bodily harm.
An 11-year-old girl had to be airlifted to Saskatoon where she underwent surgery.
Judge Earl Kalenith of provincial court in Prince Albert acknowledged Morin has strong family support, but said that was not enough to persuade him to give Morin bail. The judge said Morin’s ongoing issues with alcohol factored into his decision.
“There is not an ability to stay away from alcohol,” Kalenith said. “The risk is too great to justify Mr. Morin’s release.”
