A 26-year-old man charged with several other individuals in relation to a serious assault on the westside in September had his case adjourned in Lethbridge provincial court until Aug. 19. Jesse Dean Davidson is charged with aggravated assault, disguised with intent and failure to comply with a release order. Davidson also has other matters before the courts which were adjourned until Aug. 3. Police were called to an early-morning disturbance Sept. 25 at a trailer park in the 2700 block of Westside Drive West. When police arrived at the residence, they found a 40-year-old male suffering from serious and life-threatening injuries. The investigation revealed the incident was targeted, and the victim and suspects were known to each other. Davidson was previously sentenced in January to 90 days in jail – minus some credit for pre-trial custody – on an unrelated matter after pleading guilty to single counts of possession of stolen property over $5,000 and possession of stolen property under $5,000. Court was told a motor vehicle had been stolen from a residence in April of last year, but police found it only a few minutes later and arrested the two occupants after a brief foot chase. Davidson, who was one of the occupants, claimed he wasn’t involved in the theft but he knew the vehicle had been stolen. Barely a week later a resident saw two people emptying a parked vehicle of its contents. The witness was suspicious and photographed Davidson as he walked away from the car, which had been stolen. -With files from Delon Shurtz Follow @TimKalHerald on Twitter
