SYD­NEY —A Scotch­town man fac­ing charges in­clud­ing rob­bery was re­leased from cus­tody af­ter plead­ing guilty to pre­vi­ously breach­ing his re­lease con­di­tions. Daniel Blake Con­rod, 26, was re­leased on con­di­tions in De­cem­ber and ar­rested in Jan­uary with breach­ing the con­di­tions. He pleaded guilty to the breach and was sen­tenced to one-day served by his pres­ence in court. Con­rod had spent 29 days on re­mand as a re­sult of the breach. He is also charged with armed rob­bery and two counts of breach­ing court orders in con­nec­tion with a hold-up last Oc­to­ber at a New Water­ford taxi stand.

A trial on those charges is now set for Aug. 28.

Among the con­di­tions of his re­lease, Con­rod is to re­frain from al­co­hol and drugs not pre­scribed him by a physician, ad­here to a cur­few and is to have no con­tact with the co-ac­cused in the rob­bery case.

The trial for the co-ac­cused will con­tinue in June.
