The saga of Aydin Coban, the man charged in connection to the death of Amanda Todd, continues in the Netherlands
Coban’s lawyer Robert Malewicz says Coban has filed for appeal and his case will be retried at the High Court in Amsterdam.
Earlier this month, Coban was handed the maximum sentence of nearly 11 years behind bars for fraud and blackmail in cases separate from Amanda Todd’s
Coban was accused of cyberbullying dozens of young girls and gay men.
Malewicz says Coban will stay in jail, but if the appeal takes too long he may be released; but only if Amsterdam’s High Court rules that his time in jail is longer than what it would sentence in appeal.
A date has not been set to start the appeal process.
Next month a Supreme Court in the Netherlands will decide if Coban will be extradited to Canada to face five separate charges, including extortion and child pornography charges
in relation to Amanda’s case.
