Adjournment in paper carrier case

Nathan Fahl's lawyer was in court for his client Thursday morning.

Fahl is the 24-year-old man accused of driving the car that struck a paper carrier in the early hours of December 7, while involved in a high-speed chase with police.

He was released on extremely strict bail conditions last month and has essentially been put on house arrest, except for when he is at work.

He faces charges of dangerous driving causing bodily harm, impaired driving, failure to stop at and accident, flight causing bodily harm, carry/use/threaten to use a weapon and operating a motor vehicle while disqualified.

The matter was adjourned for one month after the Crown said thay had to review “additional circumstances” in the case.

It was at Fahl’s bail hearing in January where the court heard that another person in the car had admitted to being behind the wheel.

Donald Brodie allegedly confessed to being the driver, but vehemently denied that statement, both at the scene and during his initial 34-page statement to police.

The matter has been adjourned until March 6.
