Kidnapping trial going ahead in 2015
Three of four men charged with a kidnapping reported in Sylvan Lake in March will go to trial in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench in the spring of 2015.
Scott Hebert, 33, Thomas Larkin, 34, Logan Mitchell, 18, and Gregory Roberts, 26, were charged by Red Deer and Sylvan Lake RCMP investigating information that a man had been kidnapped in Red Deer on March 4 and escaped the following day.
Mitchell pleaded guilty in October to a reduced set of charges for his role in the incident and was sentenced to 18 months, minus seven months of credit for the time he had served in custody awaiting his hearing.
The remaining three, who are all still in custody, have pleaded not guilty to charges including extortion, kidnapping, assault with a weapon, robbery and possession of stolen property worth more than $5,000.
They are scheduled to stand trial from March 9 to 20, 2015.
