At the previous court appearance, assessment reports into Tucker’s mental condition were ordered to determine whether Tucker is suffering a mental disorder and therefore exempt from criminal responsibility.

The indication from the Crown Friday is that the assessment reports by Saskatchewan Hospital into Tucker’s mental condition are now completed. Tucker also faces one new charge of breaching a court order.

Those will all be dealt with at the next court date on Aug. 31. Tucker remains remanded to that time. He is due to appear again by CCTV.
