Justin Bourque Wants to Appeal Life Sentence


Convicted cop killer Justin Bourque plans to appeal his life sentence with a new lawyer.

Joelle Roy, a lawyer with the criminal law firm Gagne & Roy in Saint-Jerome, Que., confirmed Saturday she is now representing Bourque and is working on an appeal.

Bourque was convicted of killing constables Dave Ross, 32, Fabrice Gevaudan, 45, and Doug Larche, 40.

Constables Eric Dubois and Darlene Goguen were also injured in the shooting rampage through north-end Moncton, N.B., in June 2014.

    Criminal lawyers are low life scum. Basically, there is no crime, no matter how horrific or heinous that they are not willing to dismiss.

    No wonder lawyers are despised. We have no death sentence – there should be no appeal.
