New Westminster, B.C. –
A Dutch nationwide returns to British Columbia Supreme Court as his multi-day sentencing for little one sexploitation resumes.
The Crown is looking for a 12-year jail term for 44-year-old Aydin Coban, who was convicted in August of a number of offences associated to an unrelenting on-line assault geared toward Port Coquitlam teen Amanda Todd.
She endured three years of on-line stalking and abuse as Coban hid behind aliases and threatened and blackmailed her, earlier than she took her personal life in 2012 when she was 15.
Coban was not charged in reference to the demise, however the Crown has advised his listening to that the sextortion scheme was “morally repugnant,” he refuses rehabilitation, is at a excessive danger to reoffend and should be separated from society for a prolonged interval.
Any sentence could be added to 11 years Coban is already serving within the Netherlands for comparable offences, and the Crown is recommending the Canadian sentence be served after the Dutch penalty ends.
Crown counsel Louise Kenworthy says Coban’s defence lawyer plans to ask that any Canadian punishment be served similtaneously Coban completes his Dutch term.
The sentencing listening to is anticipated to proceed all week in New Westminster.
