MONTREAL Police informant Yves Trudeau has been sentenced to four years in prison for sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy.

Last April, Trudeau, 58, pleaded guilty to six sexual assault charges involving an adolescent boy between 2000 and 2004.

The judge at the Laval courthouse agreed with the Crown, who was recommending a four-year sentence. Trudeau, who was representing himself, recommended a two-year sentence.

Trudeau was a founding member of the Quebec arm of the Hells Angels, and is an infamous killer. He confessed to 43 murders in 1986, before turning police informant, and assuming a new identity under the witness protection program.

He was given parole from his life sentence in the early 1990s.

Trudeau was the first biker to turn informant after surviving a shootout in Lennoxville, Que.
