A Penhold man facing two assault charges in connection with an anti-racism rally in Red Deer last September will enter his pleas next month.
Kevin Sproule, lawyer for Trevor Lyle Roy, made a brief appearance in Red Deer provincial court on Tuesday. Roy was not present.
Sproule told Judge Jim Glass he still needed more time to go over the case with his client and get final instructions.
Glass said Roy must enter his plea at the next court appearance on May 25.
Roy, then-42, was first charged with assault on Oct. 7 in relation to an incident at a Sept. 20 anti-racism rally at Rotary Recreation Park.
RCMP said there was a clash between two groups before the event started, as organizers were setting up.
It is alleged that Roy was shown on video in an altercation with protesters.
Police said a review of multiple videos from the event led to another assault charge for Roy, which was laid about two weeks after the first charge.
Taylor Michelle McNallie, of Calgary, is also accused of assault. She has pleaded not guilty and has a trial scheduled for Nov. 3 in Red Deer.
This story has been corrected to show person charged is Trevor Lyle Roy.
