Three trials for man facing a variety of charges
Trial dates are being set for a man arrested recently on a series of charges that have been outstanding for up to four years.
Brandon Kevin Wattie, arrested earlier this month on five sets of criminal charges and traffic tickets, has pleaded not guilty to three sets of charges, for which three trials will be held.
Wattie, 27, was at large after missing court dates on a wide range of charges, including break and enters, possession of stolen property, theft, mischief, uttering threats, trafficking firearms and traffic tickets laid in 2009, 2010 and 2012.
He has asked to be tried in Red Deer provincial court on the charges to which he has pleaded not guilty, including break-and-enter and possession of stolen property from 2009, traffic tickets and offences from 2012 and uttering threats from this year.
Wattie has reserved his plea on two more sets of charges, which include additional property charges from 2009 and 2010.
He remains in custody pending his next court appearance, set for Aug. 28.
