(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Back to back days for Adam Goodwin, as he appears in a Thunder Bay bail court again today. He is charged after allegations that he breached his bail conditions wound him back up in the slammer at Hotel Balmoral.
He appeared in front of Justice of the Peace Marcel Donio this morning while in police custody at the Thunder Bay Police Service Station (A.K.A. “Hotel Balmoral”). Crown Attorney Manon Arbur was also present along with Ryan Green’s law student Kevin H, who was assisting Goodwin.
Allegations are that he sent his alleged victim some messages over social network “Facebook”. Goodwin claims that the victim has access to his Facebook account and that he didn’t send them to him.
Goodwin is facing the following new charges:
- Breaching bail conditions not to contact the alleged victim.
- Breaching probation order (not to contact that same woman).
- Failing to keep the peace and be of good behaviour.
He has numerous outstanding criminal charges which are still wiggling their way through the justice system. We have his previous article linked at the end of this one.
The Crown indicates that this is a reverse-onus situation and that they are not consenting to his release. He was just released yesterday. A request is put forward that Goodwin be court ordered not to contact his alleged victim while in jail.
Defence speaks privately with Goodwin and upon returning to open court, a request is put forward for Goodwin to appear once again in court in Friday so that a retainer for his lawyer, Ryan Green can make some advancements as well as time to craft a bail plan.
His Worship, Justice of the Peace Marcel Donio orders Goodwin to remain in jail. He will be shipped off to the Thunder Bay District Jail (A.K.A. “The Algoma Bed & Breakfast”), where he will wait until at least Friday for a shot to be released.
