CORNER BROOK A city man with a number of other outstanding charges before the courts will go to trial for allegedly causing damage at a Corner Brook nightclub nearly a year ago.
Mark Jeffrey Thompson, 20, entered not guilty pleas to two counts of mischief and a charge of breaching probation in August. He had a trial date set in provincial court Tuesday for March 4.
The allegations against Thompson are that he damaged a towel dispenser and a wall at the White Horse Lounge last Oct. 8.
Thompson, who was given a suspended sentence after being convicted for damaging property in Corner Brook with a pellet gun in the summer of 2011, will be back in provincial court on other matters Nov. 12.
The other charges against him are related to allegations he was involved with two other men in vandalizing an RCMP officer’s private vehicles in Pasadena this past summer.
Thompson is facing three charges in connection with the alleged spray painting of the officer's vehicles, including conspiracy to commit a criminal offence, intimidation of a justice official and mischief to property over $5,000.
