Man accused of disarming officer to enter guilty plea
A man arrested last fall for allegedly driving drunk and disarming a police officer will likely enter some guilty pleas when his case returns to Harbour Grace provincial court next month.
Robert Barrett was not in court last Wednesday, but defence lawyer Mike King appeared on his behalf by teleconference.
King told Judge Jacqueline Brazil he spoke with the Crown about the case and expects it can be dealt with by speedy disposition at the next court date.
The Old Perlican resident is facing three charges in relation to an incident that happened in late October in Victoria — impaired driving, refusal to give a breath sample, and disarming a police officer. His case will return to court Feb. 18.
