Despite charges that include driving while impaired and causing bodily harm, driving with a blood alcohol exceeding the legal limit, failure to stop for a police pursuit, and criminal negligence causing bodily harm, 23-year-old Hudson resident Jordan Taylor’s lawyer said his client will plead ‘not guilty’ at his scheduled February 26 court appearance.
“The case was remanded to complete the Crown’s disclosure of the evidence,” said Taylor’s lawyer Philip Schneider December 14 at the Valleyfield Courthouse. “If I have the disclosure by then, we’ll probably take some kind of position on the 26th.”
Taylor was charged following an accident on Cambridge Street in Hudson the evening of June 12, 2015, during which the car he was driving is alleged to have struck joggers Tina Lyon Adams and her friend Alique Remtulla-Langlois, leaving Adams with severe injuries.
He was arrested and held in custody until June 17 when he was released on $10,000 bail.
“(The police) met other witnesses and sent me statements of other witnesses,” said Schneider of the delay in the case. “I have every reason to believe that by the next date, we should have the complete disclosure in our possession.”
