Carol Berner has been denied the chance to appeal her conviction in the country's highest court.
The Supreme Court of Canada Wednesday morning dismissed Berner's application for leave to appeal her conviction in the 2008 crash that killed four-year-old Alexa Middelaer and seriously injured her aunt Daphne Johanson. Alexa and Johanson were feeding a horse in the 4300-block of 64th Street in Ladner when a car, driven by Berner, plowed into them.
Berner was convicted in July 2010 of impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing bodily harm, dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm.
She was convicted and sentenced to two-and-a-half years in jail following a four-week trial in 2010.
Following her sentencing, Berner appealed her conviction in B.C. Court of Appeal. That appeal was dismissed last year. However, she has another appeal pending. Berner is currently appealing her sentence in B.C. Court of Appeal.
The hearing in that appeal is slated to take place Thursday in Vancouver.
