St. Albert, Alta. man Craig Archibald Ayers’ trial date has been adjourned and set to a later date after Ayers chose to dismiss his current lawyer.
Ayers was set to go to trial on Monday morning for multiple fraud under $5,000 charges. However, instead of facing a court, he instead applied to remove his lawyer as his counsel due to lack of experience.
Ayers’ charges stem from him allegedly writing bad cheques. He is also charged with fraud relating to a rental scam.
He is charged with 41 counts of fraud under $5,000, 15 counts of obtaining credit by a false pretence or by fraud, and one count of fraud over $5,000.
