A sentence hearing for six men who pleaded guilty to conspiring to murder Mafioso Salvatore Montagna was delayed again because of what lawyers described as clerical problems at the Laval courthouse on Monday.

A judge expressed frustration after being informed that lawyers involved in the sentencing of six men who admitted to being part of a plot to kill a Mafioso Salvatore Montagna were again not ready to proceed.

A sentence hearing for six men who pleaded guilty to conspiring to murder Mafioso Salvatore Montagna was delayed again because of what lawyers described as clerical problems at the Laval courthouse on Monday. 

The six men pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge more than a year ago, on March 30, 2016, and have not had a sentence hearing of any substance since. 

On Monday, Superior Court Justice Andreé Vincent was told almost exactly the same thing he was told by lawyers during a hearing Feb. 22. Lawyers from both sides plan to present Vincent with joint recommendations on sentences for all six men. The problem, Vincent was told both times, is that Pietro Magistrale, 65, wants to have charges he faces at another courthouse transferred to Laval so they can become part of the sentence he receives. Defence lawyer Dominique Shoofey offered no explanation as to why one courthouse was unable to transfer Magistrale’s case to the Laval courthouse in the past four months.
