Crown withdraws some charges against two of three Stettler co-accused

Sweeting, Annable and Page reappear in court

Facing more than 100 charges combined co-accused Skyler James Page, Danielle L. Annable and Skye Desiree Sweeting were on Stettler provincial court’s Dec. 13 court docket.

Annable and Page stood before the judge with their hands folded in front, heads hung low and speaking softly when addressing the court. Sweeting wasn’t present. Instead, her lawyer, Jason Snider from Red Deer spoke on her behalf.

Lawyer Rodney Clark of Wetaskiwin is representing Annable and Craig Paterson of Ponoka is representing Page.

The lawyers asked the matter be put over until Jan. 10. Snider told the court that he just received another 1,000 pages of disclosures Dec.13. Previously, the lawyers received 3,000 pages of disclosure.
