In an appearance at Surrey Provincial Court July 11, sentencing for Frederic Dwayne Wilson was set for Oct. 30.

Wilson pleaded guilty a year ago to four of 15 charges that were announced the month after the May 2016 raid, which targeted a home in the 800-block of Parker Street.

During a sentencing hearing earlier this month, federal prosecutor Edlyn Laurie asked the court to impose a 14-year sentence on Wilson – consecutive to a seven-year term he is currently serving in connection with a Vancouver matter – while defence counsel Marvin Stern submitted that a seven-year term, also consecutive, would be more appropriate.
