LONDON, Ont. – Michael Rafferty didn't like being compared to fellow killer Paul Bernardo.
He gagged when a police interrogator suggested the two killers were similar.
But that comparison may give him a shot at getting taxpayers' dollars for an expensive appeal of his first-degree murder conviction.
Rafferty, serving a life sentence for the kidnapping, sexual assault and murder of eight-year-old Victoria 'Tori' Stafford, could learn at an Oct. 16 hearing about his chances of getting legal counsel under Section 684 of the Criminal Code.
