David Wesley Bobbitt is expected to enter guilty pleas to seven counts on April 2 in Penticton Supreme Court.

Bobbitt was before a packed courtroom today, via video feed. His lawyer James Pennington, told Justice Alison Beames his client wanted to plead guilty to seven charges. Bobbit has been charged with attempted murder, two counts of unlawful confinement or imprisonment, aggravated sexual assault, two counts of uttering threats, robbery and assault with a weapon.

Beames said she wants Bobbitt to make a personal court appearance on April 2 so he can hear the consequences of pleading guilty.

The charges were made in connection to an alleged beating and sexual assault of a  22-year-old Penticton woman in July 2011. She and her child were allegedly confined at Dave's Second Hand Store on Ellis Street. Bobbitt was the operator of the store. The woman and her child were also allegedly confined for nearly 10 hours.

Bobbit was arrested by police on Aug. 3, 2011.
