Former St George MP Dean Jonas is set to stand trial starting April 22 for multiple alleged criminal offenses.

The charges include resisting arrest, using threatening language, disorderly conduct, and assault and battery.

These accusations stem from an incident at his Scott’s Hill home on February 23, 2023, related to a dispute over child custody with the mother of one of his children.

Despite efforts by his attorneys, Wendel Alexander and George Lake, to dismiss the case, including a recent no-case submission, the trial will proceed as scheduled.

Alexander argued that the trial should not proceed because it was initiated without written authorization from the Director of Public Prosecutions, as mandated by the Criminal Prosecutions Service Act of 2017.

However, this argument was unsuccessful, and Jonas will now face trial for the mentioned charges.
