The youth appeared by video in the Calgary Court of Queen’s Bench on Friday.

It is currently unclear who will be the youth’s new legal counsel. Initially, his lawyer was Bo Aloneissi.  Aloneissi was appointed to the Court of Queen’s Bench by Justice Minister David Lametti on April 20.

The youth, who is now 19, was charged along with Amir Abdulrahman in relation to the 2020 New Years' Eve death of Harnett during a traffic stop.

Harnett, tried to stop an SUV after he noticed its licence plates didn't match its registration. It’s alleged that Abdulrahman was the passenger in the vehicle and that the youth was the driver. 

Abdulrahman was sentenced to five years in prison. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter for his role in Harnett’s death.
