Masset man makes court appearance

  • Dec. 11, 2002 5:00 a.m.

A 23 year-old Masset male who has repeatedly refused to respect conditions of the provincial court appeared in Masset court on Dec. 11 facing a number of charges.
The Masset area resident was originally arrested July 17 for uttering threats. He appeared in court and was released on a recognizance with several conditions.
On July 31, he was arrested for assault causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon and common assault. He was also charged with three counts of failing to comply with the conditions set out by the court. He spent some time in jail, but was released on conditions on August 7. He then breached his conditions on Nov. 15, and was released with a $2,000 surety a few days later.
The most recent incident involved two additional charges of failing to comply with release conditions stemming from an arrest on Dec. 7. He appeared before a judge in Masset provincial court on Wednesday Dec. 11.
“The original charges here stem from a domestic violence situation,” said Sgt. Shaw of Masset RCMP. “The RCMP take these incidents very seriously. In the past, we haven’t reported domestic violence incidents to the media as anything other than an assault. I think this needs to change. The community needs to be aware that domestic violence is a serious problem in this community. It’s so serious, in fact, that we have initiated a committee to address the issue.”
