HARBOUR GRACE, NL — The court matter involving Joshua Chubbs will have to wait another two weeks.

The Carbonear resident was scheduled to elect a trial and/or enter a plea on Wednesday morning.

However, his previous lawyer, Johnathan McDonald, is no longer with the same firm, and is therefore not involved with the case anymore.

Chubbs is currently waiting for new counsel, which is expected to take about two weeks. The matter was set over until June 14 at 9:30 a.m.

The 23-year-old is charged under the Medical Act of Newfoundland for engaging in medical practice without a license from June 1 to Oct. 15, 2016.

He’s also accused of advertising those services from Dec. 1-16, 2016. Charges were laid against Chubbs on February 20, 2017.
