Canadian man found guilty, but not responsible, in assault on bishop

February 16, 2011

A Canadian man has been convicted a near-fatal attack on a Catholic bishop, but found not responsible for his actions.

Bishop David Monroe of Kamloops, British Columbia, spent 55 days in the hospital after he was beaten and stabbed by John Bandura last October. The court found Bandura guilty, but because of his severe mental problems, both prosecution and defense agreed that he was not criminally responsible.
