Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre’s 21-year-old son has entered a therapy program while he faces five criminal charges alleging he took part in credit card fraud and obstructing justice.
Alexandre Coderre’s lawyer, Conrad Lord, made the announcement during a brief hearing at the Montreal courthouse on Tuesday. The hearing was supposed to be used as a date for Coderre to announce whether he wishes for his case to be heard before a judge alone or before a jury. Instead, Lord asked that the stage in the case be delayed because Coderre just started a therapy program. Lord did not state what type of therapy is involved.
