<p>G-Unit member Lloyd Banks and three associates, who were jailed after allegedly assaulting and robbing a concert promoter in Canada,&nbsp;were released on bail Tuesday (January 12), but Banks and 1 associate were remanded by Canadian immigration.</p><p>According to&nbsp;Olaf Heinzel, a spokesperson for the Kitchener &nbsp;Police, the two were held for unspecified immigration issues; a Canadian immigration spokesperson told&nbsp;MTV News that details about Banks&rsquo; &nbsp;and his associate&rsquo;s detention were not available at press time. A review is scheduled for later this week, after which the two could be released and allowed to return to the U.S.</p><p>All four men were arrested just after 5 a.m. on Saturday at a hotel in Kitchener. According to authorities, Banks and his associates party assaulted and robbed a local show promoter &nbsp;in his hotel room early Saturday in a dispute over pay for a concert appearance. The four were charged with criminal confinement, robbery and aggravated assault. Although police have not named the alleged victim, Banks&rsquo; lawyer,&nbsp;Patrick Ducharme, told MTV News that he is veteran booking agent Chris Hines.</p><p>&ldquo;The case probably will proceed on the basis that it will be put over for three to four weeks for me to receive what is called the &lsquo;prosecutors disclosure.&rsquo; That&rsquo;s all the information that supposedly supports the charges,&rdquo; Ducharme, who expects to enter a not guilty plea on behalf of Banks in approximately month, told MTV News late Monday. &ldquo;Then three to four weeks after I&rsquo;ve had the chance to review that disclosure, I would be prepared to set the date for the trial or preliminary hearing, depending on some procedural matters. The case will proceed through the courts. If it stays in the lower courts, it takes about a year and a few months to resolve. If it goes to the higher courts, it could be as along as a year and a half to bring the matter to court.&rdquo;</p><p>Be the first to comment – What do you think? &nbsp;&nbsp;Posted by – January 12, 2010 at 11:59 pm</p>
