Cornwall Ontario – A very frustrated Kevin Langlois left court this morning in Cornwall Ontario. Mr. Langlois shared some of his frustration over the ongoing saga that started the day of his father’s funeral when a brawl broke out between himself, lawyer Nicholas Dougan, and eventually his sister who came to his aid after Mr. Dougan bit off a portion of his ear and bloodied the lawyer’s forehead with one blow ending the brawl.
Charges were laid against all three, but because of “Conflict of Interest” Mr. Langlois could not get legal aid in Cornwall and was not furnished with any assistance to retain counsel from outside Cornwall.
In fact today was the first day after months that Mr. Langlois was able to address the court as his case was remanded to April.
Mr. Langlois shared that the Judge said he didn’t need legal aid as the Crown was not seeking jail for him. He said he addressed the court, but that a bailiff shushed him.
He stated that he feels frustrated that Mr. Dougan will be “let off” because he’s a lawyer.

For Mr. Langlois the memory of his Father’s funeral is forever marred. His ear tip was never found, and for his family the hope of punishment for the man they feel ruined their solemn family occasion seems to be fading.
