Crown prose­cu­tor Richard De­veau ad­vised that Porter’s lawyer, Lori Sa­vory, re­cently re­ceived foren­sic ev­i­dence she wanted to re­view be­fore ad­vis- ing her client fur­ther. The case will be called back to court March 8.

Porter, Troy Dob­bin, Adam Stagg and a youth who can­not be iden­ti­fied are charged with ex­tor­tion, rob­bery, as­sault with a weapon, pos­ses­sion of a weapon for a dan­ger­ous pur­pose (a knife) and con­spir­acy to com­mit an in­dictable of­fence.

Dob­bin and Stagg, who are also both in cus­tody, pleaded not guilty. Dates for Dob­bin’s trial will be set March 8, while Stagg’s three-day trial be­gins April 17 in Har­bour Grace. The youth was re­leased on an un­der­tak­ing last Septem­ber.
