Montreal-area man faces 15 charges after police standoff
The Côte-St-Luc man who barricaded himself in his home and shot at police earlier this week has been charged with 15 counts related to the negligent use of firearms.
Isidore Havis, 71, listened on the telephone from his hospital bed as the charges were listed off against him on Friday.
Havis’s lawyer said his client was too confused and exhausted from his ordeal to appear in court.
The charges are related to the intentional and negligent use of firearms, according to Crown attorney Matthew Ferguson.
Ferguson says Havis could face between four and 14 years in prison.
The 71-year-old is expected to remain under guard in hospital at least until Monday.
Next week, the Crown and defence lawyers will meet again to decide whether a bail hearing will be necessary.
