The bail hearing for one of the men charged with the recent brutal assault in Queen Charlotte has been delayed until June 27. Jimmy Lavallee was scheduled to appear in Prince Rupert June 12. But the judge initiated the date change, possibly because there was not enough time to hear his case that day. Mr. Lavallee is charged with kidnapping, unlawful confinement, uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm, assault causing bodily harm and theft over $5000. All are related to an assault that took place on May 23. Mr. Lavallee remains in custody in Prince George. Two other individuals were involved. QC resident Michael Peterson remains in custody and his next appearance is June 23 in Prince Rupert. The other individual is a youth who will appear in court in Queen Charlotte on July 15.
