Lawther Sentencing Adjourned
A sentencing hearing was adjourned today for a Glace Bay pastor who’s been convicted on a single count of sexual interference involving a girl under age 16. Robert Lawther was initially facing charges involving three young girls, but was found not guilty on the other two counts when a verdict was rendered back in December. Crown Prosecutors are asking for a two-year prison sentence and a year’s probation, while the defence is seeking an intermittent sentence. The presiding judge has reserved a decision until March 12th.
