Hebert was facing an attempted murder charge. The charges were laid following what Thunder Bay Police Service called a “Serious Incident” at a home on South Vickers Street in November 2019.

The court has agreed to an agreement between crown and defense that Larry Hebert receive a one year conditional sentence and three years probation.

Under the terms of this plea, Mr. Hebert is not permitted to contact the complainant. He is to follow a curfew set by the court. He can not possess any weapons, and has been given a five year weapons prohibition. He is not allowed to consume any drugs or alcohol during the one-year conditional sentence. He is also required to attend counselling.

Hebert was out on bail since January 2020, after spending a fairly long time with his defence putting a surety / bail plan together.

Hebert had initially sought the Mayor’s seat in the last civic election before deciding to seek re-election as a Councillor at Large. He lost that bid.

The court has placed a media ban on parts of this court case.
