CORNER BROOK — A Deer Lake man arrested in relation to an alleged assault of a man in that town in March has found himself facing almost 12-year-old charges too.
Raymond Justin William Renouf, 31, was arrested on a warrant while in St. Anthony Monday.
In provincial court in Corner Brook Tuesday, he pleaded not guilty to the five recent charges and three-dated ones.
Renouf is accused of assaulting a man in Deer Lake March 9, and assault with a weapon. He was also charged with breaking a court-ordered curfew, not drink alcohol, and breaching a probation order made by the Ontario Court of Justice on Feb. 13, 2012 to not drink alcohol.
The 2001 offences, alleging Renouf assaulted a woman in Cormack on Oct. 28 and damaged property of another man — including two mirrors, a door, and a wall.
He was also charged with failing to attend court in November of that same year.
In court Tuesday, duty counsel Gary Kearney began speaking to Judge Kymil Howe on Renouf’s behalf. Renouf interrupted when the lawyer told the judge he was not ready to enter pleas.
“Not guilty,” Renouf said. “What’s wrong with you?”
He told the judge he was not guilty to everything, that he did not want bail, and wanted the earliest possible trial date he could get.
He is scheduled to got to trial on the most recent charges Oct. 18, and on the 2001 charges Oct. 25.
