Aspiring medical student sentenced for Stanley Cup riot

Posted Image
Vancouver Canucks fans watch as an overturned vehicle burns during riots in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia after the Canucks lost Game 7 of the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs to the Boston Bruins June 15, 2011.


A Stanley Cup rioter who tried to light a vehicle on fire has been given a nine-month conditional sentence, followed by 15 months of probation.

Rag Gu Rock Gue Kim, also known as Rocky, was caught on video during the June 2011 riot damaging vehicles and trying repeatedly to set a truck outside the post office on fire.

Rocky Kim will serve five months house arrest followed by four months with a strict curfew. Crown prosecutors had asked for jail time, but Judge David St. Pierre noted the third-year biochemistry university student is remorseful.

The judge also banned Kim from consuming alcohol or being in bars and ordered him to do 100 hours of community service and make restitution for the vehicles he helped damage during the riot.

Kim did not say anything in court Wednesday, but during his sentencing hearing Kim said he no longer expects to be accepted at a medical school because of his criminal record, so he plans to become a lawyer instead.

The judge noted those were very negative consequences for a young man, but added he has to accept responsibility for his actions. The judge told Kim that many people get drunk, but they do not riot, and told him, "this is not a walk in the park".

Kim's father is a pastor at a Surrey Presbyterian Church where Kim does charity work.

More than 1,000 charges have been recommend by police against 315 individuals. The Crown has approved charges against more than 168 people. Several dozen have pleaded guilty, but only a handful have been sentenced.

Another Stanley Cup rioter avoids jail time

Rocky Kim handed a nine month conditional sentence

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – A young man with ambitions to become a doctor has avoided jail time for his actions during the Stanley Cup riot.

A judge has handed Rag Gu Rock Gue Kim, also known as Rocky Kim, a conditional sentence.

Kim is worried he won’t get into medical school with a criminal record and judge David St. Pierre agrees, saying that’s a significant factor in the young man’s life.

Kim was among the people who attacked a couple of parked vehicles near the Post Office at the onset of the riot.

During the sentencing, the judge also brought up the many calls for harsh sentences against rioters.
He says the people making those demands aren’t always entirely informed about the law and the circumstances.

Kim passed by reporters afterwards without comment.

Aww how cute and sweet of the judge.

It would be highly unfair to sentence him to jail since most people are losers without a job (or any decent job) and such a criminal record won't affect them.

Attending law school is his plan, whether or not he will be permitted to article and practise is another issue.

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

Nope because there is no front end screening to enter law school.

Once you graduate and seek articles then the Law Society screening kicks in.

You mean you can spend years of your life and tens of thousands of dollars going through law school, and then get rejected later?

I think law school is a little more than tens of thousands if I am not mistaken.

pff why stop there? He should at the very least be drug out on to the streets, naked, while we hand out flogs to all the children to whip him before tying his limbs to four Clydesdale horses tearing his limbs from his torso. Yeah that'll reform him.

Yup.

And there have been cases of persons out on parole or on probation who are in law school. If you have the marks and the LSAT score you can attend law school.

The police are still reviewing evidence and recommending charges for review by Crown Counsel per our charge approval system.

The court proceedings are barely underway.
