A 21-year-old man charged in a lengthy standoff with police in Listowel will be back in court in May.
The Stratford Beacon Herald reports that Nathan Chambers appeared on a video monitor in a Stratford courtroom on Monday as the duty counsel told a judge that he had a letter from the man’s lawyer.
The letter read that a Crown pre-trial has been scheduled, further disclosure was requested, and a follow-up appointment has been scheduled for May 16th with a request for the case to be adjourned until May 17th.
The request was granted and the judge scheduled Chambers to appear by video that day.
Chambers was first arrested back on February 22nd following the standoff with police at a Listowel home and faces several charges from that incident that have not been tested in court.
Then on April 11, he and a North Perth woman were arrested and charged after police say they assaulted a person with a stun gun and held them against their will.
Chambers faces 13 charges from that incident, none tested in court yet, including assault with a weapon, forcible confinement and flight from police.
