Prosecutor drops assault charges against Walstrom in Stettler court

Still faces charges of uttering threats

The Crown prosecutor dropped assault charges against Greg Allan Walstrom.

Crown A. Simic told Stettler provincial court Nov. 22 that she was dropping the charge against Walstrom but didn’t tell the court why.

The charges were laid by Bashaw RCMP.

Walstrom, however, still faces two charges by Stettler RCMP of threatening to cause death and failing to comply with conditions. Walstrom pleaded not guilty earlier this year and half-day trial is set for March 14 at 1:30.
