Oliver man facing 20 criminal charges has 2 trials set for spring

Arjen Jessy Alexander Huber will also appear in court charged with two counts of assaulting police

An Oliver man recently deemed by RCMP to be a problem for the community has two upcoming criminal trials this spring.

One day has been set aside for trial on April 6, for Arjen Jessy Alexander Huber, 30, charged with driving while prohibited and willfully resisting arrest from a March 2020 incident in Oliver.

A two-day trial set for May 18 and 19, in Penticton Provincial Court for Huber in connection to charges of public mischief and storage of a firearm and possession of a firearm without a license.

Huber will be in Penticton court on March 23 for a first appearance charged with two counts of assault of a police officer in January of this year.

Huber was arrested on numerous warrants at a motel in Osoyoos on Jan. 16.

Facing over 20 criminal charges at the time, he was held in jail until his bail hearing on Jan. 25.

Judge Shaw granted Huber bail without any financial obligation or surety.

At the time, Oliver RCMP said they will be monitoring Huber while he is out on bail to make sure he is abiding by his court-imposed conditions.
