Nooks had his bail extended on his possession of cocaine charge.

Reports are that the judge, Judge Vaughn Smith advised Nooks's attorney, Donahue Martin, that the case should be tried in the Drug Treatment Court. However, Martin said his team is opposed to this move.

Martin also received the judge's approval to review the Duhaney Park Police Station's narcotics and crime diaries from the period May 4 -- 10, 2017. According to the attorney, this request will allow the defence to review the documented events surrounding the case.

Nooks is also being represented by Queen's Counsel Tom Tavares-Finson.

The case has already seen two hearings -- May 17 and July 21.
