Sentencing for White Rock attack delayed for seventh time

Tyrone McDougall is set to be sentenced next month for role in violent White Rock attack.

The sentencing of a man who pleaded guilty in December to participating in a violent attack in White Rock last year was delayed yet again this month, after the man’s lawyer said he needed more time.

The July 4 appearance in Surrey Provincial Court was the seventh that had been set for sentencing Tyrone Stuart McDougall.

“There’s still information that I require with respect to Mr. McDougall,” lawyer Danny Markovitz told Judge Ann Rounthwaite, asking for an additional three weeks.

Asked how long it had been on the books for sentencing, Markovitz conceded a date has been set “on a few occasions.”

“Mr. McDougall did not attend as required,” he said.

The first sentencing date was Feb. 5.

McDougall was one of two men arrested following a May 24, 2012 police raid on a home in the 15300-block of Pacific Avenue. The court heard in December – during the sentencing of co-accused Robert Dean Orr – that the pair had gone to the home two days prior to collect on money owed from the sale of an amplifier, and that one man at the home was beaten when neither money or the equipment was forthcoming. A second man was also assaulted when he arrived at the residence.

Orr was handed a nine-month sentence, followed by a year’s probation.

McDougall has been in custody since mid-May; a warrant was issued in April for his arrest, following a missed court appearance.

Thursday, Markovitz told the judge the extra time was needed to make recovery-house accommodation arrangements.

Rounthwaite emphasized that sentencing, “like all stages in the criminal process, should take place without delay.”

Sentencing is now scheduled for Aug. 6.
