Marc Aubin will have to wait until Nov. 9 to learn if he has been found guilty or not guilty of an assault charge.
Aubin was in Falher Provincial Court on Sept. 6 for the matter of one charge of assault with a weapon, and one charge of property mischief.
Several witnesses testified for the Crown and defence counsel cross-examined them. Several exhibits were entered into evidence as well.
Aubin was the next to testify, and the Crown cross-examined him. Then a witness for the defence testified and they were cross-examined, too.
Following the conclusion of testimony, the defence counsel offered their rebuttal, followed by the Crown.
As the day was ending, Judge G.R. Ambrose said that he required time to go through all the evidence and testimony. The Crown and defence counsels agreed to hear the decision in Peace River Provincial Court on Nov. 9.

15 days in jail for assault with a weapon
Brendon C. Cunningham pled guilty to one charge of assault with a weapon and one charge of failing to attend court.
Cunningham appeared by CCTV from the Edmonton Remand Centre to have his case heard. A victim impact statement and Cunningham’s criminal record were entered into evidence.
Cunningham received 60 days in jail for the assault charge, less 45 days credit for time already served in jail, for 15 days in total. He also received a 30-day consecutive sentence for the failure to appear in court.
In addition, Cunningham is required to provide a DNA sample, but he did not receive a weapons prohibition for the assault conviction.

$500 fine for mischief damage
Leslie Shane Osbak received a $500 fine for mischief damage.
