Prosecutors are working on two strategies when it comes to the appeal and re-trial of Dennis Oland.
They told a judge yesterday they plan to appeal the October decision by the Court of Appeal which overturned Oland’s murder conviction. It will have to wait for the Supreme Court to decide whether it will hear the appeal.
In the meantime, they want to get the second trial going as soon as possible.
The judge has decided to wait until all avenues of appeal are expired before trying to set dates for that second trial. So it’ll likely be months before they do that, which means it’ll likely be at least next year before the trial happens.
