Crown recommends 21 years for Donnie Snook on 46 child exploitation related charges

SAINT JOHN, N.B.- Day two of a sentencing hearing for former Saint John councillor Donnie Snook has heard from the Crown with regard to sentencing.

Crown Prosecutor Karen Lee Lamrock has recommended a sentence of 21 years in prison for the 41 year old who pleaded guilty earlier this year to 46 child exploitation related charges. They include sexual assault and possessing, distributing and making child pornography.

12 of those years are in connection with hands-on on offences committed by Snook.

The court also heard this morning if Snook were to be sentenced for each offence separately, it would equal 75 years in prison.

Snook was arrested by the R-C-M-P after an investigation that began in 2011 involving the Saint John and Toronto police.
