Former NHL player Rob Ramage is up for parole today, eight months into his four-year prison sentence.
Ramage, 52, was convicted in 2007 of four charges, including impaired driving causing death, in a crash that killed his friend Keith Magnuson, another ex-NHL player.
He was jailed last July after the Ontario Court of Appeal rejected his bid for a new trial.
Ramage was charged after the rental car he was driving slammed head-on into another vehicle north of Toronto in December 2003, killing Magnuson
Update 2:26pm ET: From USA Today -
Former NHL player Rob Ramage has been denied in his bid to be released from a halfway house.
The board’s two members split Friday on whether to grant Ramage day parole when he becomes eligible in May. He’ll have another hearing before a new board at an undetermined date.
The 52-year-old Ramage has served eight months of his four-year sentence.
Update 2:50pm ET: From Rob Tripp via Faceoff.com -
A two-member Parole Board of Canada panel granted Ramage’s request for unescorted passes. He will be able to leave Frontenac Institution, the minimum-security prison where he is serving his four-year sentence, without an escort.
“That would be for up to 72 hours a month,” said Carol Sparling, a spokeswoman for the board in Kingston.
