Pompeo case back to determining a sentencing date
The posturing is continuing in the aggravated assault case of Const. David Pompeo.
An abuse of process application by the defence, led by Ravi Hira, has now been set aside and the sentencing is due to proceed.
The Crown, represented first by Todd Patola and now Carmen Rogers, and the defence have been exchanging potential sentencing recommendations back and forth following Pompeo's conviction for shooting Bill Gillespie in 2009 near Chemainus.
The defence alleged the Crown's decision to change its mind and ask for a longer sentence was unconstitutional.
Pompeo's case resumes in Duncan Provincial Court next Tuesday, Sept. 10 when a new date will be set for sentencing. The defence's appeal of the conviction is also due to be heard soon, Sept. 17 and 18 in Vancouver.
