HARBOUR GRACE, NL — The case against a Carbonear man accused of practicing medicine without a license could wrap up later this week.

Joshua Chubbs, 23, is charged under the Medical Act of Newfoundland and Labrador for engaging in medical practice without a license from June 1 to Oct. 15, 2016. He’s also accused of advertising those services from Dec. 1-16.

Lawyer Mike King, appearing by phone Wednesday morning on behalf of Chubbs' lawyer Rosellen Sullivan, told Judge Bruce Short the case could proceed by speedy disposition this Friday. Sullivan is scheduled to appear in court that day on another matter.

Chubbs was charged in February of this year following a police investigation. The circumstances surrounding those charges are not known, though a Carbonear woman publically accused Chubbs of offering to circumcise her son and said she reported the incident to police. That allegation has not been proven in court.
