A St. John's man charged in connection with six robberies and a theft — all within a span of two months — will likely have his case resolved next month.
Andrew Walter Carter, 27, appeared in provincial court in
St. John’s Friday via video link from Her Majesty’s Penitentiary.
He was represented in court by defence lawyer Michelle Coady.
Coady told Judge Jim Walsh that Carter is expected to plead guilty to the charges.
She and Crown prosecutor Tannis King agreed to have the case return to court June 12.
Carter faces 18 charges — six counts each of robbery and having his face masked, five counts of possessing a weapon and one count of theft under $5,000.
The robberies were said to have happened at Ultramar, Marie’s Mini Mart and City Superette businesses in the capital city between Jan. 20 and March 19.
Carter was said to have used a box cutter in one of the Ultramar robberies and a knife in four others. He's believed to have been unarmed in one of them.
The theft, from Sears, allegedly took place March 6.
