Justice Marchand of Kelowna Supreme Court considered the testimonies of Sintihakis who claimed it was a different person who sold the drugs to the RCMP two separate times on Sept 16, 2017. Justice Marchand explained that evidence against Sintihakis did not leave any resemblance of doubt before delivering a guilty verdict.
