Michael Briscoe in Jail!!!::
« on: October 04, 2008, 03:04:23 PM »
Finally, this guy is in jail where he belongs. He is one of five who killed 13, Nina Courtepatte, at a golf course, along with Joseph Labouca, and another guy named Pyro, and a couple of girls!!

Joseph Laboucan has been charged with the death of Ellie May Myers, a few days previous to the killing of Nina Courtepatte, calling nina, "the Chosen One"

So now the question is, did Briscoe, and others kill Ellie May Myer, and her body found in the Serial Killing Grounds of Sherwood Park, and surrounding areas???

Briscoe, drove the car, helped lure Nina and her friend, he drove to the golf course, and held her down, while she was beaten, and rapedd. He was let go. WHY????  Let's hope he starts talking, as their may be more surprises along the way. Was he there at Ellie's slaying? How about any others?

A man who has been ordered to stand trial a second time in the golf-course slaying of an Edmonton teenager has been remanded in custody.

The judge's order came at Michael Briscoe's first court appearance after the Alberta Court of Appeal ruled earlier this week to overturn his acquittal at his first trial.

Briscoe was found not guilty of first-degree murder, kidnapping and aggravated sexual assault in the death of Nina Courtepatte.

He was one of five people charged in the April 2005 sex slaying of the 13-year-old girl.

Briscoe must find a lawyer and will return to court Nov. 21.

A date for his new trial has not been set.

All I can say about this is it's about time. What took them so long? Hopefully this time they get it right.

I wonder if "someone" had orders. There must be others out there that don't want their names spilled since he had hearings coming up.
Why is it that gang members go for the head?

I agree Carol-Lynn.  How can the facts come out now for an official record?  These fools jumped the gun - it should have been done afterwards.  Karma.

The last case I saw did not have to do jail time b/c of his altered mental condition after a severe beating in jail, so unless he improves dramatically, guess he will then be still a suspect. No jail time in that condition. Unless he improves, he will end up in a home for the menatally disabled, supported by taxpayers.

So far the reports were from his family, and a mention from a spokesperson that these assaults will be looked into. Nothing at all confirmed that Briscoe is unfit to stand trial. For all we know it could have been a minor attack and family are adding his memory loss. Need to keep on top of this...it can't happen that he goes free.

Murder suspect hurt in prison beating

Michael Briscoe, a suspect in the slayings of 13-year-old Nina Courtepatte and prostitute Ellie May Meyer, is recovering from beatings received in Edmonton's Remand Centre, his brother said.

Briscoe is awaiting trial in the two murders. He was originally acquitted of the Courtepatte murder, but the Crown appealed.

Briscoe's brother Darren said the first of at least two beatings came in September.

"Usually someone comes from behind, puts him in a choke hold and then when they get him down they start to kick him in the ribs and the head and stuff like that," he said. "I know that he's had a broken cheek."

"The last time he got beaten up, he now speaks with a slurred voice and he has some short-term memory loss."

Briscoe said the most serious attack occurred when his brother had other inmates housed in his cell while he was in protective custody. He believes the beatings may be retribution by people who believe his brother is guilty of murder.

He said his brother has since been moved to another remand centre in the province. He won't say where for fear his brother will be attacked again.The Alberta Solicitor General's department was not able to comment on Briscoe's specific case because of privacy legislation.

But department spokeswoman Michelle Davio said the remand system is overcrowded and sometimes triple-bunking is required to accommodate every inmate.

"They do the best they can to put people into cells with compatible inmates so that nobody is hurt," she said. "It doesn't always work, but you know they do their best and they try to keep people separate as much as they can."

Davio said police are called when there is an assault in a provincial jail.

Edmonton Police Service confirmed a prisoner was charged after an assault in October. But they haven't said whether Briscoe was the victim of the attack.

Corrections and Clarifications
An earlier version of this story stated that the Alberta Solicitor General's department declined to comment for the story. In fact, the department was not able to comment on Briscoe's specific case because of privacy legislation. However, a department spokeswoman said the remand system is overcrowded and triple-bunking is sometimes required to accommodate every inmate. She added that they try to ensure people are put with compatible inmates so no one is hurt.

The blued sentence above tells you right there. If he had brain damage he would most certainly be in a hospital ICU or neuro-trauma unit. Rather he was moved to another jail. Good try brother Darren.

Interesting quote. What's compatible? Those with the same propensity? Those with no value over life? Those that harm others?...

Proceedings in an Edmonton courtroom came to an abrupt halt Friday morning when a man attacked the accused in a double murder trial.

Michael Briscoe, who is on trial in the 2005 murders of Nina Courtepatte and Ellie May Meyer, was attacked by the man as he sat in the prisoner's box listening to arguments.

Briscoe's lawyer and the Crown prosecutor were discussing whether certain evidence was admissable, when a man leapt over the partition separating the gallery from the court.

"All of a sudden a big huge guy jumped over the railing," said David Macleod, a police studies student at Grant MacEwan University who was in the courtroom.

The man ran at Briscoe who moved backwards, but ended up toppling over the box onto his head while the man grabbed at his throat.

The sheriff and Briscoe's lawyer Charles Davison managed to get a hold of the man, wrestling him to the ground and calling for help.

"He was a very big man," he said. "It was quite a few minutes before any other sheriffs came in."

Briscoe appeared to have some bruising to his neck, but told the court he was ready to continue Friday afternoon.

The man was taken into custody.

Briscoe's trial is scheduled for another five weeks.
