Subsequent tests will show blood alcohol levels of 170 and 190 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood, more than double the the limit of 80 mg.

The 34-year-old airline pilot, who ;had no criminal record, is very affected by the events, assures his lawyer.

In more than 20 years of career, I have never seen someone so shaken, insisted Mr. Simon Roy during the hearing.

He assures that his client is very sensitive to the many health problems experienced by the victims.

The defense lawyer asked that the judge not find Charbonneau guilty immediately to allow him to keep his driver's license while waiting for the determination of his sentence.

The pilot who lives in Lévis can therefore continue to travel to his place of work, ;#x27;Quebec airport.

His case will return before Judge Réna Émond in June to determine the date of observations on the sentence.
