Did the sex abuse trial of previously convicted molester turned ‘social worker’ Father Gary Hoskins trial get under way in Corner Brook, Newfoundland yesterday? I checked for media coverage. The Western Star in Corner Brook is pretty good for covering trials such as this – I see nothing. Ditto NTV. Am I missing it? or, is it just not there because it’s just not happening?
There was an application related to trial on 06 April 2016 at the Corner Brook Superior Court. Has the trial been postponed? I hope and pray that is not the case and that I have simply somehow managed to overlook the articles.
I will call today to try to find out what is happening. If you know anything about the status of the trial please post a comment or contact me.
And, yes, please do keep the complainant and his family in your prayers.
Enough for now,
Here’s the answer to my question. I missed this.
So,yes, the trial date is bumped while Crown prepares arguments to introduce similar fact evidence from previous Hoskins sex trial. That I can understand. Important. Let’s hope and pray Karne Ann Pike secures the requisite documents to make her case.
As always, during these trying days, please keep the complainant and his family in your prayers.
