Former RCMP Officer Monty Robinson Given Conditional Sentence

Former RCMP officer Monty Robinson will serve no jail time for obstruction of justice in the 2008 death of Orion Hutchinson. Robinson was found guilty earlier this year after admitting he rushed home and drank two shots of vodka after his jeep collided with Hutchinson's motorcycle. Earlier today Justice Janice Dillon handed Robinson a twelve month conditional sentence. This means Robinson will spend one month under house arrest after which he will be subject to a curfew at night. We spoke to CBC Reporter Terry Donnelly who was at the sentencing hearing.
