Trial set for White Rock officer

The case against Const. David Bickle is to be heard in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster next spring.

The trial of a White Rock police officer charged in connection with the May 2011 incident that killed pedestrian Marilyn Laursen has been set.

The case against Const. David Bickle is to be heard in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster next year, from May 25 to June 12.

Bickle was ordered to stand trial on a charge of dangerous driving causing bodily harm following a preliminary inquiry held in Surrey Provincial Court in February.

The charge relates to injuries suffered by the driver of a car that was struck during the pursuit of the vehicle that ultimately struck and killed Laursen as she crossed Johnston Road at Thrift Avenue.

It was one of two charges announced in August 2012 following a Vancouver Police Department investigation into the events leading up to Laursen’s death. The second charge against Bickle, of dangerous driving causing death, was stayed.

The driver who hit Laursen – Kyle Brandon Danyliuk – pleaded guilty to four charges in connection with the incident. He was sentenced in October 2012 to two years in prison.
