(SIOUX LOOKOUT, ON) – 22-year-old Emery Southwind has found his way back behind bars at the Sioux Lookout detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police.
He’s alleged to have breached his probation order in which he was not to possess or consume any alcohol or substances. Further, it’s alleged he breached his bail condition to be at his residence between the hours of 6:00 pm and 7:00 am.
Southwind was involved in a massive drug bust in 2017 and an assault on a male earlier this year. He appeared in a Thunder Bay courtroom this morning via telephone call from the Sioux Lookout OPP detachment.
Justice of the Peace Marcel Donio was presiding along with Crown Attorney Andrea Mason and a duty counsel lawyer. He is facing the following charges:
- Breaching probation (no alcohol or intoxicating substances).
- Breaching bail condition (curfew 6:00 pm to 7:00 am).
Southwind still has numerous drug charges, an assault charge, weapons charge and 3 breaching bail conditions charges working their way through court from previous incidents (history at end of article).
He is denied bail swiftly and scheduled to appear back in court on Monday in a Sioux Lookout court room. He is sent back to his holding cell where he will wait to be transported to the Kenora District Jail, where he will likely stay until he is released.
