Tees-area farmer Brian Russell Knight, 38, will have to wait a little longer to defend himself in court on charges of shooting at suspects involved with stealing a vehicle from his farm last spring.

A preliminary enquiry scheduled for Nov. 3 was postponed to June 17, 2010 in Stettler Provincial Court.

For the incident on March 25 and 26, 2009, Knight faces charges of unlawful use of a firearm, pointing a firearm, possession of a dangerous weapon, assault with a weapon, criminal negligence causing injury, dangerous driving and unauthorized possession of a firearm.

Two of the three suspects in the thefts are set to appear for trials next month.

Harold T. Groening, 31, of Mirror, is scheduled to stand trial on Dec. 8 in Stettler Provincial Court to face charges of theft under $5,000, for a quad, theft over $5,000 for a truck and possession of stolen property.

Kyle Rosenthal, 23, is scheduled in Stettler Provincial Court for trial on Dec. 21 to face the same charges.

A trial date is still to be set for Nick Dewald, 22, of Alix, charged with theft under $5,000.

Several people were fined in Stettler Provincial Court on Nov. 12

Natasha C. Jolicouer was fined $1,100 for driving a motor vehicle with a blood-alcohol content over 80 milligrams after she pleaded guilty.

“Both readings were aggravating,” said Judge Albert Skinner.

“They were almost double the legal limit.”

She was also suspended from driving for one year.

Colton J. Agema, 18, was fined $500 for assault after he head-butted another male on Sept. 12 at Stettler Recreation Centre parking lot while he was intoxicated and the victim fell down and suffered a concussion.

He was also placed on probation for one year and prohibited from consuming or possessing alcohol and drugs and from having any contact with the victim.
