Swiminer has been remanded into custody and will appear in Bridgewater Provincial Court on today, October 26 at 9:30 a.m. to face charges of Intimidating a Judicial Participant and Being Unlawfully in a Dwelling House.

‘A charge of this nature is laid when police believe that a person has attempted to directly or indirectly intimidate a witness in a matter before the courts, ‘ says Sgt.
