Bail hearing continues today for teen accused in Calgary officer’s hit-and-run death

Published on

CALGARY — A bail hearing for a teen accused in the hit-and-run death of a Calgary police officer will continue today.

The hearing began Tuesday for the 18-year-old accused, who was 17 at the time of the offence on Dec. 31.

He has been charged with first-degree murder and cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Police have said Sgt. Andrew Harnett was hit and dragged while attempting to stop an SUV after noticing its plates didn’t match its registration.

Harnett died later in hospital.

Police allege the accused youth was driving the SUV and a 19-year-old man was a passenger in the vehicle.

The 19-year-old has also been charged with first-degree murder.

Prosecutor Doug Taylor told the court Tuesday that he plans seek an adult sentence for the youth if he’s convicted, which would be life in prison with no eligibility of parole for 10 years.

He later told reporters why the Crown is opposed to the suspect’s release.

“Simply put, the Crown’s position is that the young person ought to be detained for both the safety and the protection of the public and to maintain confidence in the administration of justice,” Taylor said.
