There has been a delay in some of the sentencing hearings in the drug conspiracy case involving two Hells Angels and their associates.

B.C. Supreme Court Justice Carol Ross explained Monday that she has been delayed at a trial in Prince Rupert and therefore would not be available to resume the sentencing hearings for James Howard, Bryan Oldham, David Giles and Shawn Womacks until later this month.

Howard, an HA associate convicted of conspiracy to traffic cocaine, was supposed to have his sentencing hearing resume March 1. It has now been delayed until March 17. The Crown is seeking a 15-year sentence for Howard.

Giles, convicted on several counts, will have his sentencing hearing on March 21 and 22.

Womacks sentencing hearing will be held March 20.

All four were ensnared in a reverse sting by Mounties posing as South American drug lords. The conspirators handed over $4 million down payment on 200 kilograms of cocaine and committed to purchasing another 300 kilos more.
