Bail has been revoked for a convicted drug dealer O’Neil Constantine Parchment, who is seeking a new trial.
This after he was sentenced to more than four years in prison.
Parchment was arrested in January after violating orders to live in the Nanaimo basement suite of a friend when he was granted bail in December 2014.
A BC Court of Appeal judge has now ruled the man with 50 prior convictions continues to pose a threat to the community.
Parchment’s bid to have his 2013 conviction overturned is slated to be heard next month.
Last year, the 56-year old sued the Provincial Government.
He claims he was assaulted by guards while being transferred to a Prince George jail five years ago.
Court documents also contain allegations a white supremacist group arranged to have him attacked at a Vancouver Island facility in 2009 because he’s black.
