Bulletin: Dr. Aubrey Levin: CBC News reports several of former forensic psychiatrist's grounds of appeal; Bail hearing set for February 13, 2013.

STORY:  "Calgary psychiatrist to appeal sex assault convictions," published by CBCNews on February 3, 2013.

GIST:  "Minutes after Levin was sentenced, his lawyers filed a notice of appeal, which indicates Levin wishes to be tried again by a judge and jury. The grounds of appeal cited in the notice filed include that the trial judge erred by: - "Failing to order disclosure of relevant information in the control of the Crown, which impeded the appellant's ability to make full answer and defence." - Pressuring jury members to arrive at a verdict after they had concluded that they could not reach a unanimous verdict and didn't believe further deliberations would change that. - Not allowing full and proper cross-examination. A bail hearing has been set for Feb. 13."

The Toronto Star, my previous employer for more than twenty incredible years, has put considerable effort into exposing the harm caused by Dr. Charles Smith and his protectors - and into pushing for reform of Ontario's forensic pediatric pathology system. The Star has a "topic" section which focuses on recent stories related to Dr. Charles Smith. It can be found at:
