Judge concerned with Kalmikoff reliability

The Supreme Court judge in the Krista Kalmikoff case says he has concerns about the reliability of the convicted local robber.

Justice Mark McEwan was speaking at the conclusion of her sentencing hearing in Nelson Friday.

Kalmikoff testified in court Friday that she was a drug addict when she acted as an accomplice to armed robber Andrew Stevenson in 2014.

But the judge noted Kalmikoff had told the jury during last year’s trial that she used no drugs – not even marijuana – and it was on that basis she had been convicted.

Kalmikoff said she didn’t admit to her heroine addiction earlier because she was embarrassed about it.

Her defence is seeking a maximum of two years saying she has drug and mental health issues that require re-hab.

The prosecution is seeking a five year jail term for her role as getaway driver and for fleeing police among other counts.

She’ll learn her fate May 24th.
