KAMLOOPS - A chronic prohibited driver who struck and killed a woman at a crosswalk in Kamloops has had his appeal hearing delayed for nearly a month.
Donald Isadore, 64, was to be in court on Monday, but the hearing was rescheduled for Feb. 10.
Isadore was driving without a licence on Nov. 21, 2012, when he hit 66-year-old Valerie Brook.
He was convicted last year of failing to yield to a pedestrian but is appealing his six-month sentence on grounds that his aboriginal background was not properly considered.
Brook was walking on a green light when Isadore was turning left on a downtown street.
He had multiple driving prohibitions and suspensions when he struck Brook.
Isadore has never held a valid driver's licence but has a record of driving infractions dating back to 1986.
