New disclosure has been received in the case of a man facing 25 charges relating to a series of events in late July.
Gary Thomas Hennessey appeared in St. John’s provincial court Friday by video link from Her Majesty’s Penitentiary, where he’s remained since his arrest in July.
Hennessey is accused of committing several crimes against a woman, including assault, unlawful confinement, uttering threats, and mischief by damaging her property.
The 29-year-old is also accused of assaulting three police officers and a correctional officer, and faces several charges for breaching court orders.
Hennessey’s lawyer, Scott Hurley, was in another courtroom dealing with a separate matter when his client’s case was called Friday. Crown prosecutor Jeff Summers told Judge David Orr that additional disclosure has been received for review.
Summers also advised that Hurley’s schedule will become quite busy given his involvement with the defence team handling the eight-week murder trial for David Folker. That trial is scheduled to begin Monday.
Orr agreed to set over the matter until Oct. 11 for a status update.
