Psych exam ordered

A New Brunswick man accused of a violent

assault Friday will undergo a psychiatric assessment.

Corey Thomas
Goodine, 35, appeared briefly in provincial court Monday to face a Nov. 13 count
of aggravated assault, alleging an attack on a minor.

Duty counsel Joseph
FitzPatrick asked the court Monday to send Goodine for a 30-day psychiatric
assessment to determine if he’s fit to stand trial or might be exempt from
criminal responsibility for his alleged actions.

He said Goodine’s
sister, a social worker, informed him that Goodine has been diagnosed with a

chemical imbalance and takes medication for depression.

Crown prosecutor
Cameron Gunn didn’t oppose the request.

Judge Julian Dickson ordered the
assessment.

Goodine will return to court Dec. 16.

After an
incident at St. Mary’s First Nation on Friday, an arrest warrant was issued for
Goodine.

He turned himself in later that day in Perth
Andover.
