No plea for man accused of uttering threats against RCMP

David Earle Crawford, charged with uttering death threats against police June 9 outside the Codiac RCMP station, appeared in court today in Moncton. The hearing was scheduled for entering a plea but is postponed

19-year-old David Earle Crawford will appear in court again August 27

A 19-year-old Riverview man, charged with uttering death threats against police and harassment, has had his most recent court appearance held-over until August 27. 

David Earle Crawford appeared in court with a hair cut and clean shave Friday morning in Moncton.

The appearance was originally scheduled for Crawford to enter a plea but the matter was held over since there is a possible conflict of interest between Crawford and his legal aid representation.

Crawford was charged June 9, after allegedly uttering the threats outside the Codiac RCMP station just five days after three RCMP officers were killed and two others were injured in Moncton. 

A condition of Crawford's release to house arrest was that he not have any contact with Justin Bourque, 24, the man facing three murder charges and two attempted murder charges in connection with the June 4 shooting. 

Crawford was also ordered to have no contact with 25-year-old Jasper John Stam who pleaded guilty June 18 to uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm about police to another person.

Crawford remains under house arrest.
