SCOC won’t hear Dennis Oland appeals

The lawyer for Dennis Oland says he’s happy that the Supreme Court of Canada has decided it will not hear an appeal by the Crown.

The Crown had wanted to restore Oland’s conviction which was overturned by the provincial Court of Appeal last fall. Alan Gold had filed a cross appeal asking the high court for an outright acquittal. The high court refused to hear either one.

So now Gold and the prosecutor will start working on a getting a new murder trial set…probably not until next spring.
