Crown will not appeal conditional sentence of ex-Mountie Monty Robinson

The Crown will not appeal the sentence given to a disgraced former RCMP officer convicted of obstruction of justice.

Benjamin (Monty) Robinson was given a 12-month conditional sentence, meaning he won’t go to jail for trying to hide his possible impairment after he was involved in a fatal traffic accident.

Copwatcher says: Monty Robinson was also one of the officers that murdered Robert Dziekanski by tasering him to death at the Vancouver Airport. Read more below.

In a written statement, Crown spokesman Neil Mackenzie said the sentence handed down was legally available to the judge and no error of law could be found.

Mackenzie noted that Robinson’s trial attracted much public attention and that’s why the public deserves an explanation as to why there will be no appeal.

Robinson was convicted in connection with a collision that killed motorcyclist Orion Hutchinson in Delta, B.C., four years ago.

He left the crash scene, went home and drank two shots of vodka.

The judge found that Robinson used his RCMP training to hide the fact that he had been drinking before the accident.

Robinson announced he was quitting the force the day of his sentencing in July.

After the trial, Hutchinson’s family expressed its disappointment that the sentence did not involve jail time.

  1. Well that article there has to prove how fucked up and lopsided the law is. He kills two people, one while under the badge, and another off duty. Gang-Electrocuting a man to death who was lost in an airport, and vehicular manslaughter while under the influence of alcohol, with his young children in t he car. And he serves no jail time? If anyone belongs in a jail its a cop. If a civilian would have done either of those things and been caught, they would be in a world of hell. Im sure this pig is in awe that he actually got away with what should have been 2 murders. The law cant justify whats plain in front of us.
