A deputy sheriff accused of trying to smuggle drugs into the Central Nova Correctional Facility in Burnside is going to trial.
Defence lawyer Pat Atherton confirmed his client Tyrone David consented to be committed to stand trial this week as a preliminary hearing into his case was still ongoing.
David will appear in court Jan. 13 at Supreme Court in Halifax to set a date for trial. David, 41, was a provincial deputy sheriff in October 2009 when he was arrested after an alleged drug transaction. He’s facing 20 charges in total, including trafficking and bribery of an officer.
