A Toronto man who perpetrated eight years of horrific sexual and physical torture on his stepdaughter is seeking to delay his sentencing hearing for six to eight weeks.
Mac Bool Hassan appeared briefly in Superior Court Monday and will be back on March 27 when Madam Justice Faye McWatt will set a sentencing date for the 49-year-old Toronto man. Court heard Monday that Hassan will ask for a pre-sentence report.
Such reports, which usually take a probation officer a few weeks to prepare, detail a convicted person’s background so that a judge can consider the information when determining an appropriate sentence.
Earlier this month, it took a jury only four hours to find Hassan guilty of 13 criminal offences against a girl the Children’s Aid Society entrusted him to protect.
He was also found guilty by the same jury of assaulting her half-brother.
Neither child can be identified due to a publication ban.
