A judge has acquitted Leo Crockwell of two of the eight charges he was facing in relation to a 2010 standoff with police in Bay Bulls.

Judge Richard Leblanc has found Crockwell not guilty of possessing a firearm without a licence and not guilty of assault.

Leblanc did not give the jury the reasons for his decision.

The jury will still have to deal with six other charges, including assaulting his sister with a weapon and unlawfully discharging a firearm.

The Crown completed its case Friday and is scheduled to give its summation this afternoon.

Crockwell, who is representing himself in court after dismissing three lawyers, told the court that he won't be calling any evidence and is expected to give his summation Tuesday morning.
