WINDSOR — The man who was once charged in connection to a Windsor-based bawdyhouse has pleaded guilty to assault and breaching probation.

Myles Walter Card, 23, of Windsor, pleaded guilty to charges of committing an assault and three counts of failing to comply with probation.

Card was at the side of the courtroom, in custody, on Feb. 16, while his lawyer, Chrystal MacAulay changed his pleas to guilty on three of the four counts.

Card was formerly represented by Patrick MacEwen during the bawdyhouse trial in 2015, where his former roommate, Justice Treyvon Hunter, was sent to jail for five years. For knowing Hunter was running the bawdyhouse, Card received one day in custody deemed served, nine months probation and was instructed to refrain from consuming drugs and alcohol or contacting the victims.

On Feb. 16, Card plead guilty to committing an assault in Brooklyn between Nov. 13 and 14, failing to keep the peace and be of good behaviour while on probation, and for failing to abstain from the consumption of non-prescribed drugs while on release conditions.

The Crown and defence lawyers are awaiting a victim impact statement before proceeding with sentencing.

Card has been remanded into custody until Feb. 19, when his sentencing will be dealt with.

The matter was originally scheduled for trial in September.
