A Richmond man who plied two teenage girls with drugs and alcohol and failed to intervene as they died is appealing his dangerous offender designation.
In December, Martin Tremblay was handed an indeterminate prison sentence.
Tremblay was convicted of criminal negligence causing the deaths of 17-year-old Martha Jackson and 16-year-old Kayla Lalonde in March 2010.
He invited the girls to his home, giving them drugs and alcohol until they passed out and videotaped himself sexually assaulting them.
Now Tremblay is appealing his sentence on grounds the dangerous offender designation violates his charter rights, because it is overbroad.
The appeal references the Boutilier case, where a BC Supreme Court Justice ruled such a provision is unconstitutional.
BC’s Criminal Justice Branch is appealing that ruling.
