Man charged in Banff assaults makes court appearance

The bail hearing for a man charged with 12 counts related to kidnapping and sexually assaulting two women in Banff earlier this month was held over for another month.

Cory Lawrence Bitternose appeared by CCTV in the Banff Provincial Court from the Calgary Remand Centre Monday morning to hear another criminal charge had been filed by the Crown and his bail hearing would be set over until Aug. 18.

The four-week adjournment was recommended by duty counsel Jackie Clarke who said Legal Aid had yet to process Bitternose's request meaning he did not have a lawyer present to represent his interests.
