The man who is responsible for the death of 16 Humboldt Broncos players has met legal justice. Thankfully there won't be a need for a drawn-out trial in this terrible saga. 


Jaskirat Singh Sidhu has pleaded guilty on 16 counts of dangerous driving causing death and 13 counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm when ​he crashed his semi-trailer into the Humboldt Broncos bus.

​​Hopefully, all those who are affected will get some closure as the driver receives his rightful punishment. 


Sidhu never intended on making a fight in court. He planned to plead guilty on all counts and will face his due time. He took responsibility for his actions and spared the families he's already hurt from appearing in court to rehash and recall the tragedy. 

For some ​Humboldt Broncos families, hearing the guilty plea is a massive relief. 


Sidhu's sentencing will begin later this month on Jan. 28. It's unclear how much time he will receive in prison but it should be a significant. The maximum amount of time for dangerous driving causing death is 14 years on each count, while the max time for dangerous driving and causing bodily harm is 10 years for each count.
