Accused remanded again for breaching release conditions
SYDNEY — Having only been released on conditions Monday, a Frenchvale man finds himself back behind bars after being charged with breaching his conditions. Cory Todd John O’Neil, 35, of Frenchvale Road, is now charged with eights counts of breaching his release conditions, two counts of mischief involving property damage (windows in a police vehicle and a sprinkler head in the regional police cell area), and single counts of threatening a police officer, assault and resisting arrest by attempting to pull officers over a flight of stairs.
The breach charges include failing to keep the peace, failing to abstain from alcohol and drugs, failing to abide by a curfew and failing to have no contact with certain individuals.
The offences are alleged to have occurred Wednesday.
As a result, O’Neil’s father, who posted $15,000 in property, withdrew as a surety for his son’s bail and O’Neil consented Thursday to a further remand until May 31. O’Neil was released earlier this week on charges that include three counts of assault and single counts of assault with a weapon, break and enter, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer and unlawfully being in a dwelling. Those offences are alleged to have occurred between February 2016 and last April. Prior to leaving court Thursday, O’Neil turned to his father an apologized for his most recent actions.
