Po­lice of­fi­cer who shot Ya­tim gets bail ex­ten­sion

Waterloo Region Record - - CANADA -

A Toronto po­lice of­fi­cer con­victed of try­ing to kill a teen on a Toronto street­car has had his bail ex­tended into 2018. Pre­vi­ous bail con­di­tions for Const. James For­cillo were set to ex­pire Sunday, a day be­fore the of­fi­cer is sched­uled to ap­peal his con­vic­tion for the at­tempted murder of Sammy Ya­tim. But a bail ex­ten­sion doc­u­ment now states the ap­peal process will con­tain a “fresh ev­i­dence phase” and says For­cillo may re­main free ei­ther un­til the day be­fore that hear­ing or un­til April 2, 2018, which­ever comes first. For­cillo was sen­tenced to six years for shoot­ing Ya­tim mul­ti­ple times in 2013.
