Furman returned to jail earlier this summer after he breached 11 conditions leading up to his hearing, which included personal attempts at destroying trial evidence.

Furman will remain in custody until his next court date on Oct. 21 while a pre-sentencing psychological assessment is conducted and made available at the hearing.

The Crown originally wanted the pre-sentence report to assess Furman’s likelihood to reoffend.

The 30-year-old is also instructed not to contact the individuals involved in the incident at this time, who can’t be named because of a publication ban.
