Judge Irwin Lampert called the file of a man charged with three motor vehicle infractions, including operating a vehicle without proper insurance, licence and registration. The accused, who had stalled the court on previous occasions, was supposed to have a date set for trial.
When the judge called the man's name, a young woman wearing a dark blue jacket and skirt stood up in the back of the room and said she was there to represent the man. Lampert asked if she was his lawyer or, if not, how she was connected to the accused.
The woman informed the court she works at the Delta Beausejour and said the man called the front desk that morning and asked her to go to court to tell the judge he couldn't make it. Lampert asked if she knew the accused at all and she said had met him once when he was having photocopies made at the hotel.
"Do you have a number you can reach him at?" he asked the young woman.
"Yes, I have his number," she responded.
"Good, call him and tell him he's been deemed guilty on all counts," said the judge.
I don't think she's going to get a tip.
