OPP Statement

The Director has carefully considered the sentence imposed on Steven Cleary.

In light of all of the relevant sentencing considerations, there is no reasonable prospect that the Court of Appeal would consider the sentence to be manifestly inadequate.

Those sentencing considerations include the application of the Verdins principles, the utilitarian value of the plea of guilty and the absence of any prior convictions.

Accordingly the Director has determined that no appeal will be filed.
