City councillor Rick Dubeau was nowhere to be found in a Timmins court Tuesday morning.

Dubeau, who is facing charges of corruption and breach of trust, was represented by Defense Lawyer Ben Dawkins.

It’s alleged Dubeau offered to act in a preferential manner to Goldcorp at city council in exchange for the company to purchase his home at a premium.

A focus hearing in the case has been scheduled for January 26th.
