Staying in Jail

A Bridgewater man who was arrested and returned from Calgary will remain behind bars until his next court appearance October 7th. Twenty-two year old Cory Kyle Langille is facing nine charges including two of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault in connection with a pair of early morning stabbings in Bridgewater on June 29th, 2008. Both victims were taken to hospital in serious condition and required surgery. A Canada wide warrant was issued for Langille and Bridgewater Police travelled to Alberta when he was located and arrested August 21st at his brother's Southwest Calgary apartment.

Not Fair Game (note content)

Grabbing a female clerk's breast and making inappropriate remarks has landed a Hebb's Cross man probation for a year. Fifty-seven year old Donald Warden Tanner received a suspended sentence and was ordered to take counselling and submit a DNA sample and will be listed with the Sexual Offenders Registry for 10 years. Tanner was charged with sexual assault following the incident at an Italy Cross gas station March 26th. Although Judge Anne Crawford agreed the offence was on the low end of scale she told Tanner the time has passed when men can consider women fair game in public, and there must be consequences for his behaviour. The victim in an impact statement to the court says she is now fearful of people and feels she might be touched if she is "too cheerful."
