Charges against the Port Clements man following some post-election hijinks have been changed, says Sergeant Jim Vardy of the Masset RCMP.
Police originally recommended two criminal charges, unlawfully in a dwelling and trespass at night, but Crown Counsel in Prince Rupert, which actually lays the charges, came back with one criminal charge of mischief, according Sgt. Vardy.
The man was allegedly found in Gerry Johnson’s house yelling and swearing at Mr. Johnson, a losing candidate in the November 19 municipal election. Thirty-three year old Travis O’Brien’s first court appearance was scheduled for Wednesday, January 18 in Masset.
