Defence challenges dangerous offender application

By NUNATSIAQ NEWS

Defence lawyer Euan Mackay is fighting the Crown’s application to have Mosesee Nowdluk deemed a dangerous offender.

A jury convicted Nowdluk, 37, of arson on Oct. 17 and he awaits sentencing. However, Mackay is appealing the jury’s verdict.

A dangerous offender can be held in jail indefinitely.

“Arson is not a serious offence,” Mackay argued.

The dangerous offender application hearing is scheduled for Jan. 20.
