Police officer who shot Yatim gets bail extension
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.
