The Docket: Two big trial verdicts and a noteworthy drug trafficking case

StarPhoenix court reporter Bre McAdam reviews the biggest court cases for the week in this episode of The Docket.

On Thursday, Northwoods Inn and Suites owner John Pontes was convicted of sexual assault for grabbing a female tenant’s breasts, but not for a rape she alleged happened later that night.

A day earlier, Kiel Stewart was in another Saskatoon courtroom to learn the judge’s decision in his trial for drunk driving causing the deaths of two people in a crash near Young, Sask., in 2016. He had testified he wasn’t driving at the time, but the judge didn’t believe him and convicted him.

And earlier in the week, the last person was sentenced in connection with Project Forseti, the massive Saskatoon drug and gun investigation targeting the Fallen Saints and its connection with organized crime. Daryl Nagy was selling cocaine to fund his addiction and was caught up in high-level trafficking, his lawyer said.
