Psychologist didn’t factor Hells Angel Larry Amero’s messages into his report, B.C. court hears
Before B.C. gangsters Sandip Duhre and Sukh Dhak were killed in 2012, Hells Angel Larry Amero lamented in a message to an associate that he couldn’t participate directly in the hits because of injuries sustained when he was shot in Kelowna a few months earlier.
“If I was healed, we would have already drove back and done this proper,” Amero said in the message, writing under the alias Skull Buster.
Crown prosecutor Damienne Darby asked forensic psychologist Dylan Gatner in B.C. Supreme Court on Tuesday if he had considered the written messages found on encrypted devices when assessing Amero’s risk to the community once released.
Gatner was hired by Amero’s defence team to write a report for the biker’s 15-day long sentencing hearing evaluating his potential for violence and recidivism.
Gatner told Justice Miriam Maisonville on Tuesday that it was hard for him to put weight on any of the messages as Amero would not answer questions in his interview about the offences for which he was convicted last year.
