Defence obtained in Vernon attempted murder case

Tyson Darryl Cole will appear in Vernon Law Courts next Oct. 25

After six judicial interim release adjournments, a man accused of attempted murder has acquired legal representation.

Tyson Darryl Cole, born 1987, appeared in Vernon Law Courts via video Wednesday, Oct. 10 for his seventh judicial interim release hearing following a three-week adjournment from his Sept. 20 hearing at which he denied legal aid as he didn’t want to “get stuck” with appointed representation.

Cole told Judge Jeremy Guild Wednesday that Troy Anderson of the Lower Mainland will be his defence and asked for a one-month adjournment in the matter.

“That’s a pretty long time and I can understand many reasons why you may want to, but without having some indication that Mr. Anderson is your lawyer and acting for you on this, I’m a bit reluctant,” Judge Guild said.

Crown prosecutor Nina Johnsen confirmed that there is a lawyer on Cole’s matter.

“I would suggest that a month does seem a bit long. Perhaps two-to-three weeks would be more appropriate,” Johnsen said.

Judge Guild granted a two-week adjournment to ensure that Anderson is on the record as Cole’s defence and has disclosure.

Crown sought and was granted, a no-contact order for Cole under which he is to abstain from contacting three people, two of whom the crown labelled as witnesses.

Cole first appeared in Vernon Law Courts for a judicial interim release hearing July 27. He was arrested in Vernon on July 26 by RCMP for attempted murder.

RCMP located Cole, who was wanted for attempted murder and multiple other firearm-related offences dating back to May 2018, at Kin Beach and transported him back to the Vernon RCMP detachment.

“After a short foot pursuit with the male, the officers were able to safely take Cole into custody,” said Const. Kelly Brett. “At the time of the arrest, the beach was sparse of people and the responding officers did a great job at apprehending the male without further incident.”

He will appear next in Vernon Law Courts Oct. 25 at 10:30 a.m.

Cole remains remanded in custody. None of the charges against him has been proven in court.
