Larry HebertTHUNDER BAY – Former Thunder Bay City Councillor Larry Hebert has made bail. Hebert has been incarcerated at the Thunder Bay District Jail since November following what Thunder Bay Police said at the time was a “serious incident”.

Subsequently, Hebert was charged with Attempted Murder, and remanded in custody. There have been several court hearings with Hebert’s lawyer working to put together a bail plan. The total case is under a publication ban so details of the actual incident can not yet be reported.

Today, Hebert’s lawyer was able to present a bail plan that the courts have approved.

The former city councillor, who lost his council seat in last October’s civic election was released. The release is subject to several conditions.

Hebert must avoid alcohol and any other intoxicating substances. He is prohibited from possessing weapons. Additionally, Hebert is not permitted to be in contact, or be in the vicinity of several people involved in the original incident.

Hebert’s release is subject to a no-deposit $1,000 bond. If his surety fails to hold Hebert to the bail conditions, his surety could be made to pay $10,000.

Hebert is due back in court on February 25, 2020. None of the charges against Hebert have been proven in court.
