Pictou Advocate Court

Hood sentencing date pushed back to fall


A former teacher accused of sex crimes has had her sentencing pushed back until the fall.

During a court appearance last week, the case of  Carolyn Amy Hood faced more adjournment time.

After being found guilty on counts of sexual assault, sexual interference and two counts of luring minors after her two week trial in November of last year, Hood reappeared in court last week to have her sentencing date put over. This was due to the defence’s intent to raise a constitutional issue regarding sentence length before the sentencing takes place.

It was also noted that the sexual offender risk assessment will also delay the sentencing as it will not be ready until approximately August.

The sentencing for the former teacher will now take place October 13 in Pictou Provincial Court.
