The 35-year-old with an extensive history of bad driving pleaded guilty on April 7, 2017 to five counts related to four separate incidents.

After the sentence was handed down, Winczura said in October he planned to appeal. The appeal was held in New Westminster Supreme Court on Jan. 19.

Then Justice Terence Schultes read his rejection of that appeal in Vancouver Supreme Court on April 6. Winczura – who has been out of custody pending the appeal – did not attend the hearing on April 6 and was ordered to turn himself in by 2 p.m.

But he never showed up, and as of April 28 he was listed among the week’s most wanted on the Upper Fraser Valley Crime Stoppers Facebook page.
