Legal counsel Tessa Willebrand appeared in a Welland courtroom virtually on Friday, Feb. 23 as an agent for Steven Soos’ lawyer, Andrew Burton. Willebrand said a judicial pre-trial conference needed to be rescheduled, and requested an adjournment to March 22 at 9 a.m. The request was granted by Justice of the Peace R. J. Whalen.

Soos, who is a Welland resident, was arrested by Niagara Regional Police on Aug. 17, 2023 and charged with two counts of mischief. He is a former candidate for various elective offices, and has been prominent in recent years as a social advocate for individuals suffering from mental health issues, addiction, and homelessness.
