LLOYDMINSTER - A trial for 23-year-old Lane Ryder Pahtayken didn’t proceed as scheduled Wednesday in Lloydminster Provincial Court.
North Battleford Crown Prosecutor Loren Klein and Saskatoon defence lawyer Katherine Pocha told the court they are in discussions on a possible global resolution for all of Pahtayken’s charges.
Pahtayken appeared in court in the prisoner’s box sitting with his arms crossed and head down.
He was arrested after an alleged incident on Onion Lake Cree Nation where a firearm was discharged inside a home on April 10.
He is charged in two separate incidents. His charges include assault with a weapon, three counts of assault, two counts of intentionally discharging a firearm, four firearms-related charges, two counts of operating a vehicle while being pursued by police and failing to stop, impaired driving, driving while over .08, driving while prohibited, dangerous driving, obstruction of a peace officer, fraud, being at large, theft of a vehicle.
He is also charged with approximately 12 breaches for failing to report to a probation officer, failing to appear in court, failing to comply with a 24-hour curfew, failing to comply with conditions not to possess or consume alcohol, failing to carry identification, failing to keep the peace, failing to comply with conditions not to carry a firearm, and failing to comply with conditions not to be in the driver’s seat of a vehicle.
The charges against Pahtayken haven’t been proven in court.
Pahtayken is scheduled to appear next in Lloydminster Provincial Court on Nov. 3 by CCTV from the correctional centre.
