Testimony Begins in Fish Trial

After an attempt to fire his attorney on Monday, Bernard Fish will not be granted that request. Testimony in the armed robbery case began yesterday in Baraga County Circuit Court. Fish told Judge Charles Goodman on Monday that he wanted to fire his attorney, Matthew Tingstad, and represent himself. Judge Goodman rejected Fish’s request yesterday. Fish is charged with two counts each of armed robbery, extortion and unlawful imprisonment. He’s also facing one count of impersonating a peace officer. Fish is accused of robbing two Watton residents at gunpoint in August 2013 while pretending to be a U.S. Marshal. His nephew and former co-defendant, Donovan Waupoose, is expected to testify against him after taking a plea agreement.
