ESTEVAN - It was another busy docket session in Estevan Provincial Court on Monday.

Mills-Miller had previously pleaded guilty to theft of a motor vehicle; operating a vehicle while being pursued by a police officer and failing to stop without a reasonable excuse; and having possession of a weapon for a purpose dangerous to the public.

He has since pleaded guilty to the other charges he was facing: threatening to use a weapon in committing an assault, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and failing to abide by a probation order.

His case was adjourned for sentencing on Sept. 19.

The matters for Curtis W. Armstrong of Fillmore have been adjourned to Sept. 19, as he needs to seek legal representation. He was apprehended in Midale in early August, and is facing charges of transporting a firearm and ammunition in a careless manner; possessing a firearm without a licence; possessing a firearm while prohibited; and unauthorized possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle, all under the Criminal Code.
