Jun 04, 2013 - TRIAL DATE TO BE SET FOR JOHNATHAN PRATT - COURT OF QUEEN'S BENCH, WETASKIWIN

Due to the delays which have occurred so far the Crown Prosecutor's office obtained a 'Direct Indictment' from the Attorney General's office to proceed to trial.

The trial is expected to be scheduled for April 28 to May 23, 2014. It is slated to be a jury trial. A new bail hearing is required and has been scheduled for today.

Accused must enter into a new recognizance (bail document) for Federal Court. Bail conditions will be the same as before.

Appearance by Pratt may not be required as the trial can be booked and the documents entered by fax if Defence agrees.

Pratt is facing three counts of impaired operation causing death, three counts of over driving while over the legal blood alcohol limit of 0.08 mg causing death and three counts of manslaughter.

He was released on bail in late February, 2012.
