Kenneth Bryan, former political assistant to Premier Alden McLaughlin, may hear the verdict in his trial on Feb. 24, after the date was adjourned from earlier this month.

Bryan pleaded not guilty to charges of disorderly conduct and assaulting a police officer in the execution of his duty outside Dream Night Club in the early hours of Oct. 11, 2014.

Trial began last year and concluded on Feb. 3 with Bryan’s evidence, followed by closing speeches from Crown counsel Scott Wainwright and defense attorney Karin Thompson.

In setting a date for the verdict, Acting Magistrate Philippa McFarlane offered three options, but Ms. Thompson indicated she would not be available this week.

The date settled on was Feb. 9, but the magistrate subsequently had a scheduling difficulty. An officer in the Criminal Registry said the matter had been re-set administratively for Feb. 24.
