Accused bank robber James Whittlesey will appear in the U.S. District Court in Harrisonburg on Friday or early next week.
This is an update from what we were reporting earlier Tuesday. Originally Whittlesey was scheduled to appear in Charlottesville on Thursday. Officials tells us the change is because of the logistics involved with bringing Whittlesey back to Virginia.
When he appears in court he will be arraigned on federal charges.
Whittlesey was brought back to the United States in April.
FBI officials tell TV3 he was brought from Canada to New York and then was taken to Vermont. That's where he made a court appearance April 25th.
Whittlesey had been locked up in Canada, after being captured in Montreal near a homeless shelter, where officials say he was staying.
He faces charges in Virginia of bank robbery and attempted capital murder of a police officer.
Those charges relate to an alleged incident that happened last October when police say Whittlesey robbed United Bank in Winchester and shot at Lieutenant Mike Danielson.
