Preliminary hearing date set for one man accused in forcible confinement case

Two men accused of forcible confinement, robbery and extortion will be back in court in the new year.

Luke Dean is scheduled for a preliminary hearing at Lloydminster Provincial Court on April 22. The hearing will determine if there is enough evidence to proceed to a trial and Dean will elect how he wants to stand trial.

After a conflict in North Battleford Legal Aid, a new lawyer will be representing Jason Palsich on his charges. He will be back in court on January 4.

The two men were arrested and charged following a house search in Lloydminster in August. According to Lloydminster RCMP, the two men were involved in an ongoing investigation where a victim was allegedly assaulted and confined to the house before being able to flee and contact police.

Both men were jointly charged with forcible confinement, assault with a weapon, uttering threats, robbery with a weapon and extortion.
