The man charged in connection with Coquitlam Teen Amanda Todd’s death will face a legal reckoning tomorrow, but not for her case.
A Dutch court will deliver a verdict and possible sentence to Aydin Coban for a separate, European trial.
Aydin Coban faces multiple extortion and child porn charges separate from Amanda’s case, and prosecutors are asking for the maximum sentence, nearly 11 years.
Amanda’s mother Carol says the last few days have been filled with anxiety.
“I hope that the court system in the Netherlands make the right decision by finding him guilty based on the evidence in the trial out there. These people have been hurt and traumatized by him.”
Todd says regardless of the outcome, the Supreme Court in the Netherlands will rule whether Coban will be extradited to Canada to be tried for Amanda’s case.
“On April 4, the Supreme Court in the Netherlands will rule whether he will be extradited to Canada or not. If the answer is yes, then all the appeals out there need to be completed before he can come out here. If the Supreme Court out there says he cannot be extradited, there will be a case of Aydin Coban versus Amanda Todd out there.”
Coban is accused of tormenting dozens of youth through webcam video, including Amanda who took her own life in 2012.
