New charges against human trafficker

The first person convicted in Nova Scotia of human trafficking is facing new charges after allegedly threatening the 15 year old victim during a court appearance earlier this week.

21 year old Owen Gibson-Skeir is alleged to have mouthed the words “I’ll see you” and then made a shooting gesture with his hand as he was being led out of court after pleading guilty. He has now been charged with intimidation of a justice participant and uttering threats.
