In an update to my interview with Robin Baird 10 days ago, prosecutors have announced that Corporal Monty Robinson will not be charged with dangerous driving causing death,or impaired driving causing death.
Crown is, however, proceeding with a charge of obstruction of justice against the RCMP who was involved in an accident that killed 21 year old Orion Hutchinson last year.
Corporal Robinson was off-duty when the jeep he was driving struck Orion Hutchinson, who was driving a motorcycle at the time. Hutchinson died at the scene, however Robinson left the scene, and returned later where he then failed a breathalyzer test. After a 7 month-long investigation, Delta police recommended the dangerous driving causing death charge, along with the impaired driving causing death charge to crown for approval.
Crown now says that the available evidence does not show beyond a reasonable doubt that Robinson was actually over the legal limit- at the time of the accident. Robinson claimed that he had taken alcohol between the time he left the scene and the time he returned.
