KAMLOOPS, B.C. - A chronic prohibited driver who struck and killed a woman at a crosswalk in Kamloops, B.C., has had his appeal hearing delayed for nearly a month.

Donald Isadore, 64, was to be in court on Monday, but the hearing was rescheduled for Feb. 10.

Isadore was driving without a licence on Nov. 21, 2012, when he hit 66-year-old Valerie Brook.

He was convicted last year of failing to yield to a pedestrian but is appealing his six-month sentence on grounds that his aboriginal background was not properly considered.

Brook was walking on a green light when Isadore was turning left on a downtown street.

He had multiple driving prohibitions and suspensions when he struck Brook.

Isadore has never held a valid driver's licence but has a record of driving infractions dating back to 1986. (Kamloops This Week)
