The sentencing hearing of ex-priest and Oblate Eric Dejaeger continues in the Iqaluit courthouse in Nunavut.
21 January 2015: Eric Dejaeger sentencing: Lawyers’ arguments expected today
The Crown has concluded his submissions. He is asking for 17 years (25 minus eight for time served)
The following is the welcome live blog from CBC’s Peter Worden:
Day Three of Eric #dejaeger sentencing hearing begins. Court will hear from Crown and defence how much time they think he should serve.
Hearings resume at 1:30 EST when defence will present final submissions. Imagine, no matter what he gets as far as jail time goes Dejager will probably get double time for time served!
Enough for now,

How terribly sad that PI died before being able to testify. May he rest in peace.
