Berg­eron af­fair continues

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Staff

In an­other twist to an al­ready murky case, Syl­vain Berg­eron, who was ar­rested in Jan­uary on drug charges, ap­peared briefly be­fore Judge Carla Alessio-Poli­can­dri­otes on Mon­day. The Illi­nois prose­cu­tors are say­ing that tests were still pend­ing at the crime lab to con­firm the pres­ence of nar­cotics in the bun­dle po­lice seized. They are ex­pected to be com­pleted some­time in July.

Along with his pub­lic de­fender at­tor­ney, he re­viewed documents be­fore the case was called.

Berg­eron, who faces years in prison if con­victed, said noth­ing to Alessio-Poli­can­dri­otes.

In a case with more ques­tions than an­swers, this lat­est turn of events is even stranger than the rest of the case: Why is it that, at this stage of the pro­ce­dure, the prose­cu­tion seems un­sure of what was seized from Berg­eron?
