Ebanks, Bouchard back in court

Two high-profile court cases went before Magistrate Valdis Foldats on Tuesday and were reset to return to Cayman Islands Summary Court in early September.

The first, involving Cayman’s former electricity regulator Joey Ebanks, dealt with several theft charges against Ebanks that remained in Summary Court, as well as two drugs-related charges. All matters were reset for 3 September in Summary Court.

Ebanks’s trial on other matters related to alleged dishonest acts while he was managing director of the Electricity Regulatory Authority is scheduled for mid-2014. That trial will take place in Grand Court.

Michelle Bouchard, charged with multiple counts of theft, as well as forgery, transfer of criminal property and obtaining property by deception, is expected to have her case committed to Grand Court. However, she will have to appear before the Summary Court one more time on 3 September to finalise conditions of her surety bond.
