Due to a conflict in North Battleford Legal Aid, a case involving two men accused of forcible confinement has been pushed into December.
Luke Dean and Jason Palsich were scheduled to make a plea at their appearance in Lloydminster Provincial Court on November 23rd. Palsich’s lawyer informed the court of the conflict which would require him to have a new legal representative.
Both are expected back in court on December 14.
Both men are facing multiple charges stemming from a police search warrant issued in August. The accused were charged with forcible confinement, assault with a weapon, uttering threats and extortion.
The allegations against the accused have not been proven in court.
