(KITCHENUHMAYKOOSIB, ON) – STAY AWAY FROM KEEMOOCH LANE
BIG TROUT LAKE OPP ARREST INTOXICATED MAN FOR THREATENING TO PUNCH PREGNANT WOMAN IN THE STOMACH.
Appearing by telephone this morning, Saturday February 16,2019 from the Kitchenuhmaykoosib Aaki 84 OPP Station is ROY TRENT OSTAMAN.
It’s W.A.S.H. (Weekend And Statutory Holiday) Court today. Her Worship, Zelda Kitchekeesic is presiding. Provincial Crown Derrick Silvestro is here along with Duty Counsel Aranka Golphy.
OSTAMAN was arrested last night for allegedly being intoxicated at an address on Keemooch Lane where he was ordered to stay away from. He allegedly wanted to punch a pregnant woman in the stomach while intoxicated. He has a history of violence towards this woman.
He’s facing charges of uttering threats and causing a disturbance.
Crown Attorney Silvestro agrees to release OSTAMAN to go reside at an address on Chief Park Road with a 200$ no deposit recognizance and other conditions. Her Worship Kitchekeesic orders OSTAMAN released with conditions to have no contact with his alleged victim. He’s ordered to stay away from the address on Keemooch Lane and not consume any alcohol.
OSTAMAN tells the court he’s jobless and on welfare.
He has a future court date.
Duty Counsel Aranka Golphy stands after the release is ordered and says that OSTAMAN has requested a Section 517 publication ban.
Crown Attorney Silvestro points out to her that she is not following the proper court procedure. A Section 517 cannot be ordered after the release. Only during the court proceeding. Golphy appears confused as to what the proper procedure is. Her Worship Kitchekeesic seems to not mind not following court procedures and orders it anyways.
Just another weekend in WASH Court with a Duty Counsel who isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer.
