A city woman pleaded not guilty in Grand Forks Provincial Court Tuesday, Jan. 12, to two charges of assaulting a peace officer in connection with an incident that occurred on March 17, 2020. The accused, Sherry Langevin-Hughes, entered her pleas through her legal counsel, who reached the court via phone.
The Crown is also seeking to impose a peace bond for Langevin-Hughes in connection with a charge of fear of injury/damage by another person.
Judge Phillip Seagram ordered the court to fix a trial date for Langevin-Hughes’ assault charges on Tuesday, Feb. 9. The judge agreed to defence counsel’s request that the accused be tried by a separate judge regarding the Crown’s application for a peace bond.
