Roper already serving time for his role in 2012 Emyvale robbery
Scales of justice
A man who was charged with perjury in connection with a robbery trial will be back in court next month after his case was adjourned Thursday.
Lawyer Brandon Forbes represented Chase James Roper, who wasn’t in provincial court in Charlottetown where Chief Judge John Douglas adjourned the case until March 13. Roper is serving a four-year sentence for his role in an Emyvale robbery in 2012.
He was also a witness in Derry Ian Bird’s trial in connection with the same robbery, but was declared a hostile witness. Bird was found guilty this month.
