A man convicted of a boat crash that killed a houseboat operator on Shuswap Lake in 2010 is appealing.
Leon Reinbrecht told the BC Court of Appeal in Kamloops, delays in his case infringed on his right to a timely trial.
The Crown argues the delays were not its fault.
Reinbrecht was convicted in 2015 of criminal negligence causing death and causing bodily harm, in the crash that killed Ken Brown and injured eight others.
He was sentenced to three years in prison in 2016.
It’s not known when a decision on the appeal will be handed down.
