A Rimbey Mountie accused of assault and uttering threats will go to trial next fall.
Const. Jesse Charles Lambright, 53, was ordered to stand trial after a preliminary inquiry held early in October.
The charges arise from events alleged to have occurred in connection with a personal relationship during the period of Oct. 10, 2010, through Sept. 19, 2011 and do not relate to Lambright’s duties as a police officer.
Represented by Red Deer lawyer Will Willms, Lambright has elected to be tried by judge alone in Court of Queen’s Bench.
His trial is set for Sept. 10 to 12, 2013, in Wetaskiwin.
