A jury is now deliberating the fate of Leo Crockwell, after Justice Richard LeBlanc spent Thursday morning going over the evidence about what happened during a 2010 standoff in Bay Bulls.

LeBlanc spent more than three hours explaining the law as it pertains to each of the six charges Crockwell faces.

Crockwell is accused of assaulting his sister and threatening her. He's also charged with mischief because he's accused of not allowing his sister and mother back into the house he shared with them.

He also faces three other charges: using a firearm while committing an indictable offence, careless use of a firearm, and firing a gun in the house.

The sixth and most serious charge is reckless use of a firearm. That charge relates to the night of Dec. 8 when Crockwell allegedly shot at a police robot and officers when they tried to enter the house Crockwell was in through the back door.
