Details of Brock Gould’s court proceedings have been released. Declan Letters has already plead guilty second degree murder after assaulting Dolores White in her home in Kearney on April 6th. Gould on the other had initially been charged with accessory after the fact. Reporter Roland Cilliers from the Almaguin News was in Sundridge Court on Monday. Cilliers says Gould helped Letters after Letters stabbed White multiple times.
The accessory after the fact charge was withdrawn and was replaced with obstruction of justice, which Gould plead guilty to.
Cilliers says the charged was changed to obstruction because the judge felt that it was a more appropriate charge. White’s family were able to have their say in court. Cilliers says four family members gave impact statements.
It was also revealed in court that after White was attacked in her home, White was able to get help from family.
On top of time already served behind bars, Gould has been sentenced to an additional 162 days and two years probation. Declan Letters is back in court next month for submission of sentencing.
