Cpl. Christopher Chaulk, 28, of Base Petawawa, pleaded guilty to two counts of assault causing bodily harm. In an agreed statement of facts, the soldier admitted his role in two attacks that occurred at the base during the early morning hours of May 6 and May 8, 2010. At the time, Chaulk was training to deploy to Afghanistan as part of Task Force 1-10.
Chaulk is due back in court Jan. 4 to hear Justice Martin James' ruling on the psychiatric assessment.
Crown attorney Jason Nicol said Wednesday he has filed an application to have the accused declared a dangerous offender.
Chaulk has been in custody at the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre since he was arrested following a joint investigation by military police, the Ontario Provincial Police and the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service (CFNIS).
