SHRUBSALL LOSES APPEAL IN STALKING CASE

William Shrubsall's appeal of his conviction and sentence for a Halifax, Nova Scotia, sexual stalking two years ago was unanimously rejected Wednesday by the Canadian maritime province's high court.

Jailed in Halifax for almost two years and facing up to four criminal trials there for alleged sex attacks on and robberies of Canadian women and still facing a New York State prison term of up to 14 years, he argued his own appeal of the 1999 conviction before a three-judge panel of the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal on Jan. 18.

Still challenging the legality of police tapes that led to his arrest two years ago for alleged crimes against former girlfriends in Nova Scotia, the former Niagara Falls High School honors student who killed his mother 12 years ago goes on trial again April 3.

The provincial high court Wednesday rejected Shrubsall's contention that Provincial Court Judge Patrick Curran of Halifax last Feb. 12 improperly convicted him of criminally harassing a Halifax woman in February 1998.
