CORNER BROOK A Corner Brook man pleaded not guilty to damages in a night club in the city last October.
Mark Thompson, 20, has been charged with a number a mischief-related offences in the past couple of years — including receiving a suspended sentence for drive-by pellet gun damage to properties in the summer of 2011.
In provincial court in Corner Brook Tuesday morning, defence attorney Adam Baker — on behalf of Thompson’s lawyer Robbie Ash — entered not guilty pleas to damaging a wall and a towel dispenser at the Whitehorse Lounge Oct. 8. The alleged offence also resulted in a charge of breaching probation.
A not guilty plea was also entered in relation to a failing to appear in court charge from Jan. 15.
Bake said Ash was requesting a trial date sometime after February 2014, due to his full schedule. The date is expected to be set Tuesday, when Thompson is scheduled to appear on charges related to the vandalizing of an RCMP officer vehicle in Pasadena.
He is facing three charges in connection with the alleged spray painting of the officer’s personal vehicle in his driveway. He was charged with conspiracy to commit a criminal offence, intimidation of a justice official and mischeif to property over $5,000.
The co-accused in the incidents are brothers Michael Flynn, 22, and Paul Flynn, 25.
