Saskatchewan’s court of appeal has increased the sentence of a Regina gang leader serving 15 years for manslaughter.
At issue is the amount of credit he was given for pre-trial custody.
Shawn Curtis Keepness was given four-and-a-half years for time served, some of that a two-for-one credit for his time behind bars which left him with an additional 10-and-a-half years to serve.
The appeal court has upped that to 14 years.
He was the ringleader in a Regina home invasion in 2007 where one man was killed and two others were injured.
