Edrick Antoine, driver in Gaetan Gosselin hit out soon

Edrick Antoine, 44, acted as the getaway driver in the slaying of a close friend of mafia leader Raynald Desjardins. He has been ordered to stay off the Montreal Island when he is released from a penitentiary. He was part of a hit group of the reds, Unit 44, from the Bo-gars. Gaetan Gosselin was killed in 2013 outside his home in St-Léonard. The murder was part of a conflict between the Rizzuto organization and Desjardins when he tried to take control of the Montreal Mafia in 2010 and 2011.
Antoine and his cohorts were warned in prison by cops that there was a contract on their heads. Antoine pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder in 2017 and was sentenced to 15 years. With time served, he had eight years and 10 months left. He was turned down for parole in April 2021. He will soon qualify for statutory release. Most serving time in federal penitentiaries who have not been granted parole are automatically released after they reach the two-thirds mark of their sentence.
