A BC Provincial Court Judge acquitted Const. David Pompeo of aggravated assault following a second trial. The conviction of the first trial was overturned by the BC Court of Appeal which ruled that the trial judge compromised the appearance of fairness through his questioning; the court ordered a new trial. Ravi Hira QC, who argued the case, suggested that changes are required in how the province approves charges against police officers acting in the line of duty.
