Aboriginal man released from custodyFeb, 09 2007 - 12:30 PM
CAYUGA (AM 900 CHML) - The aboriginal man charged with assault at the standoff in Caledonia has been released into the custody of the Mohawk traditional council.
Trevor Miller has been in jail for six months since his arrest in a northern Ontario reserve.
Miller's detention was a bone of contention among supporters of the Six Nations people, because he has been behind bars for so long.
He was charged with assault and two counts of robbery after two incidents in Caledonia in June.
One involved the assault of a television cameraman and another involved the theft of a U-S border patrol vehicle.
A judge said he doesn't see why Miller shouldn't be released.
The council said they guarantee that Miller will be in court for any future hearings.
