According media reports, Mount Pearl native Mark Yetman’s sentencing on two counts of sexual assault that occurred in St. Catherine’s, Ont., has been delayed for six weeks until March 22.

The 24-year-old goaltender was found guilty in October 2012 on charges laid after he and a friend met two women at a Brock University campus bar in December 2009, and took them back to their home where the assaults occurred.

At the time of his arrest, Yetman was a goaltender for the school’s men’s hockey team.

The sexual assault conviction carries a maximum sentence of 10 years.

Yetman played three seasons with the Quebec Major Junior League’s Halifax Mooseheads before attending Brock. Since the charges were laid, he has been living in Newfoundland where he has played senior hockey for the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts, the Mount Pearl Samurai and, most recently, the Conception Bay North CeeBee Stars.

The delay in sentencing comes on the verge of the CeeBee’s two-game set with the Gander Flyers that will decide the fourth-and final berth in the Newfoundland Senior Hockey League post-season, which begins next weekend.

    The Telegram, once again, amazes me! How is a tweet worthy of publishing? If you really did your job, you would write the ENTIRE story about what this young man has experienced, and not select bits of information to further demoralize him. I can see why you're having trouble with selling this rag! Shame on all of you! I can tell you that anyone who has met or knows Mark can attest to the fact that this conviction is wrong!

      Hi Patsy, if the conviction is wrong, maybe you could help fund an appeal or request for retrial. Once his innocence is shown, you would get your money back as part of the wrongful conviction settlement.
