Constable Woodrow Trial will Contine in November

Yesterday afternoon the trial continued for Constable (Cst.) James Woodrow.

Cst. Mark Blackmore was cross examined by both the defense lawyer and crown attorney.

The defense lawyer criticized Cst. Blackmore for assisting in the arrest of the victim.

Apparently an on duty officer, Cst. Des Mollon was supposedly on his way.

Cst. Blackmore provided Cst. Woodrow with the keys to the detachment to detain the victim for causing a disturbance.

Later in the afternoon, Audrey Obed took the stand.

Obed was invited to Cst. Woodrow’s residence for drinks the night of the incident.

She only recalled what she could remember from that night.

This morning at 9:30, Judge Joy set a date for video conference for two more witnesses in the case.

That will take place on July 23rd at 1:30pm, in Goose Bay.

The trial will continue and hopefully conclude on November 1st at 1:30pm.

  1. Ridiculous that this matter has gone to trial. It's simply because the accused is an RCMP officer - that's it. Never mind what the so called victim did. Cst Woodrow is a good police officer and caring individual. Good luck Jim.
