The hang glider pilot involved in the accident that killed 27 year old Lenami Godinez-Avila on April 28th will have his next court appearance on June 18th.
William Jon Orders is accused of swallowing a media card that may contain video evidence related to the death of 27 year old Lenami Godinez-Avila.
Orders’ lawyer Laird Cruickshank says this has been a traumatic incident for Orders.
“I know he’s expressed his remorse to me on an ongoing basis and I think he really needs some time to get out of custody and process things in the appropriate fashion.”
Cruickshank says Orders has done what he can to help police.
“He disclosed to police the events surrounding the memory card and has been cooperative with them since that time.”
Crown attourney Paul Blessin says at this point he can’t say anything about whether Orders will face any other charges.
“That’s up to the police to us send more information. At the moment we’re proceding on the charge of obstruction of justice.”
Orders made a brief appearance in Chilliwack court today and has been released on 5750 dollar bail with conditions that he can’t operate a hang glider.
