Satvir Sanghera’s trial was postponed twice before he pleaded guilty in December 2022.

The sentencing for a Richmond man who pleaded guilty to four sex crimes will not take place this week as originally planned.

Satvir Sanghera’s two-day sentencing hearing in Richmond Provincial Court, scheduled to begin on July 11, has been cancelled; a new date has yet to be set.

Sanghera pleaded guilty in December 2022 to two counts of sexual assault and two counts of soliciting or communicating for sexual services. The charges date back to December 2015.

He was originally charged with 17 counts, including sexual assault and possession of child pornography.

According to Richmond’s Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), the incidents allegedly occurred in Richmond, Vancouver and Coquitlam.

Sanghera’s trial was postponed twice before he finally pleaded guilty, and his sentencing, scheduled for November 2023, was postponed until this year after he was hospitalized with serious health problems.

Sanghera is scheduled to return to Richmond Provincial Court on July 22 to set a new sentencing date.
