Dean Del Mastro out of jail again

 

September 29, 2017

 

BY TERRY GILLIS

 

On September 13, former Peterborough Conservative MP Dean Del Mastro was returned to the Central East Correctional Centre in Lindsay following the Ontario Court of Appeal’s unanimous vote to uphold Del Mastro’s 2014 convictions on three violations of the Canada Elections Act.

On September 15 Del Mastro applied to the Supreme Court of Canada for leave to appeal the Ontario Court of Appeal’s decision.

By Thursday, September 21, Del Mastro was released from jail on bail.

Del Mastro was found guilty in 2014 and was sentenced in 2015 to 30 days in jail and four months of house arrest.

After spending his first night in jail, Del Mastro was released on bail the following day to file his first appeal.

After losing that appeal in Oshawa court, he was returned to jail for six days before filing his second appeal.

He spent one day in jail in June, as his Ontario Court of Appeal appeal was being heard in Toronto.

Del Mastro spent nine days in the Central East Correctional Centre in Lindsay this time.
