He allegedly paid Lamoer and his accused, by covering some of their fuel, clothing and travel costs.

The court says it may consider acquittals on some of the charges, in light of written pleas.

Lamoer wants a social worker's report to be included into his pre-sentencing report, to take into account his personal circumstances.
