Crown wants jail time for Good Samaritan attackers at Stanley Cup riot

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

At the sentencing hearing for three men convicted of attacking a Good Samaritan in the Stanley Cup Riot, the Crown is explaining why their sentenced should be stiffer than others guilty of the same crime.

Those previously convicted of assaulting Robert MacKay during the Stanley Cup Riot pleaded guilty but, Crown Rod Flannigan says Carlos Barahona-Villeda, David Leonati an Michael MacDonald were found guilty after a trial.

He says there are few mitigating factors for these three men – except David leonatti who aided the police investigation and quickly expressed remorse.

Flannigan is asking for a sentence range of 12 to 15 months behind bars.

Sentences of four to eight months were given to those previously convicted of attacking MacKay.
