Another delay in Pompeo case while notice of appeal was filed a month ago

Date for sentencing won't be set now until April 2

Const. David Pompeo approaches the Duncan courthouse in September during his trial.

The News Leader Pictorial has obtained documentation that a notice of appeal was filed just two working days after Const. David Pompeo’s conviction for aggravated assault.

Pompeo was found guilty Feb. 14 of shooting Bill Gillespie in 2009 and remains on restricted non-operational duties with the Nanaimo RCMP detachment.

Pompeo’s counsel Ravi Hira signed the appeal notice Feb. 18 and it was received and stamped the next day by the Vancouver Court of Appeal registry.

Eight grounds for appeal of the verdict rendered by Judge Josiah Wood were cited.

A date for Pompeo’s sentencing was also supposed to be set Tuesday in Duncan provincial court but that was delayed till April 2.

“I’m just crushed that they’d have the audacity to pull this crap,’’ said Gillespie. “It’s another slap in the face and I’m so sick of this.’’
