Crown to appeal Snelgrove verdict

The Crown will appeal the not guilty verdict in the Douglas Snelgrove case.

Snelgrove, an RNC officer, was given a verdict of not guilty by a jury.

He was charged with sexual assault after he took a young woman home in his patrol car and allegedly assaulted her.

Snelgrove said that sex was consensual, the complainant says she could not remember if she had consented.

The RNC says that Snelgrove has been suspended from the force without pay since the summer of 2015.
