The week-long trial began Monday, Jan. 21 in Williams Lake provincial court for the assault case involving RCMP Const. Andy Yung, who pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault, following a Sept. 10, 2011 incident when then 17-year-old Jamie Haller was alleged to have sustained injuries while in the custody of the Williams Lake RCMP.

Charges were recommended on Mar. 7, 2012 after the Abbotsford Police Department had concluded an independent investigation of the totality of the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Judge Randall William Callan, Provincial Court of B.C. Prince George, is overseeing the trial.
