One of the men involved in dumping the body of Deepak Beaudoin-Reichmann in the Kemptville Creek has been sentenced to five years in jail. In a Brockville courtroom on Monday, twenty-seven-year-old David Lojk apologized to the victim’s family, and to the family who found the body.
He pleaded guilty to charges including possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, indignity to a dead body and obstruction of justice. When asked why he didn’t call for help as Beaudoin-Reichmann suffered medical distress and an eventual drug overdose, Lojk explained that he was already facing drug possession charges and did not want to face further investigation.
His lawyer said a proposed private member’s bill will create amnesty from drug possession charges for people who call 9-1-1 to report overdoses.
