New trial possible for Doug Snelgrove, RNC officer accused of sexual assault

A Royal Newfoundland Constabulary officer acquitted of sexual assault in 2017 will face a new trial for the same charge, after provincial judges granted the Crown's appeal of the case.

A two-to-one decision delivered Oct. 17 agreed with the Crown's appeal argument that the original trial judge had erred in instructing the jury about the issue of consent involving a person in a position of authority, and ordered a new trial into the matter.
