Skylar Prockner, the teen convicted of murdering Hannah Leflar, has filed an appeal to his sentence.
The now 19-year-old was given an adult sentence of life imprisonment with no chance of parole for 10 years on July 6.
Prockner pleaded guilty to stabbing 16-year-old Leflar to death in her Regina home on Jan. 12, 2015.
He filed a notice with the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal on July 31, stating that trial judge Jennifer Pritchard “erred in law.”
Prockner argued Pritchard elevated his “level of culpability and blameworthiness … as a result of numerous offers of professional help made to the appellant and his family prior to the commission of the crime.”
Prockner said Pritchard ignored “significant evidence pointing to the lack of maturity of the appellant coupled with significant mental health challenges that he was/is facing.”
No date has been set for the appeal hearing. Prockner has requested to be present.
