Moose Jaw Provincial Court

No progress for Tatum

Ryan Tatum's case is sitting at a standstill.

Tatum, one of three alleged to have been involved in a home invasion in March, appeared again before Moose Jaw provincial court on Monday.

He faces charges including break and enter and several firearms-related offences.

One of Tatum's co-accused, Amber Ward, pleaded guilty to similar charges in May and will be sentenced June 23. 

The other, Nicole Bouchard, will next appear June 17. 

Tatum's matters have been set over to June 18.


Ebach changes plea to guilty

Norman Ebach appeared before Moose Jaw provincial court Tuesday to change his plea on an assault charge to guilty.

Ebach declined counsel and opted to represent himself. He attended a pre-trial before changing his plea.

The charge stemmed from an incident in which Ebach assaulted a man who was dating his ex-girlfriend.

According to Crown prosecutor Brian Hendrickson, Ebach waited for the man and then punched him in the face. The man did not sustain any serious injuries.

Ebach had a previous conviction on his record that factored into his sentencing.

"While your record is old, you do have one," Judge Margaret Gordon told him, adding that she had to take into account the fact there were no serious injuries in the assault.

Gordon sentenced Ebach to probation with a court order to avoid all contact with the assault victim. He will also have to pay $500 in fines and surcharges.
