All three were thrown from the vehicle when Bomford’s Jeep Liberty hit the median on westbound McKnight Boulevard on Tuesday, Oct. 18.
Nelson survived the crash and read an emotional victim impact statement in court in August. The 20-year-old now lives with a brain injury after nearly every bone in her body was broken.
Bomford was over three times the legal limit when he got behind the wheel.
Crown prosecutor Trevor Fik asked for Bomford to be sentenced to seven years in prison.
Defence lawyer James Wyman, meanwhile, argued for a five-year sentence.
Bomford is expected to appear at the Court of Queen’s Bench at 1 p.m.
