Stephen Wants To Change His Guilty Plea

A hearing in the case of 65 year old Gregory Stephen....the Saint John man appeared frail in court as he appeared to answer to charges he robbed the Bayview Credit on the West Side.

Stephen telling the court he suffers from chronic liver disease, was sleep deprived and wasn't in his right mind when he pleaded guilty and now wants to change his plea. He says he has periods of psychosis when he goes off the drug diazepam and was hearing voices when he was locked up for the bank robbery.

Stephen was also charged with theft from Shoppers Drug Mart....and says he doesn't even remember being read the charge so he wants to change his plea on that as well.

The robbery on September 3 resulted in the lockdown of 2 west side schools.
