The former Richmond RCMP officer convicted of obstruction of justice in the 2008 crash that killed a Tsawwassen man will have to wait a little bit longer before learning his sentence.
Cpl. Benjamin "Monty" Robinson was originally scheduled for sentencing today (June 1), but according to the court registry, the date for the sentencing hearing has been moved to July 20.
Robinson was convicted in March of obstruction of justice in the crash that killed Tsawwassen's Orion Hutchinson.
The 21-year-old died Oct. 25, 2008 after a collision between his motorcycle and Robinson's Jeep at about 10: 15 p.m. in Tsawwassen.
Following the crash, Robinson left the scene and walked with his children to his house, a short distance away.
Once settling his children into bed, he drank two shots of vodka before returning to the scene of the crash.
During the eight-day trial the defence argued Robinson drinking the vodka before returning to the scene was not intentional but merely the actions of an alcoholic.
Justice Janice Dillon, however, found Robinson's actions deliberate.
He will be sentenced at B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster.
