Court dismisses Const. James Forcillo's appeal in Sammy Yatim case

An Ontario court has dismissed Toronto police Const. James Forcillo's appeal of his attempted murder conviction in the shooting death of 18-year-old Sammy Yatim. In the same decision, it opted to uphold his six-year prison sentence.

In 2016, the trial judge sentenced Forcillo to six years in prison following an unusual verdict by the jury.
It found Forcillo not guilty of second-degree murder, but guilty of attempted murder, in the death of the 18-year-old who was holding a knife inside an empty streetcar in the early morning hours of July 27, 2013.
