Crown counsel has been granted another adjournment in the assault/uttering threats case against Comox Valley Boxing Club owner Jonathan Macleod, due to the reported illness of crown’s only witness in the case.

Counsel was also granted an adjournment on May 21, 2019, under the same circumstances.

It is the third adjournment overall for the trial.

Macleod was granted an adjournment at the initial trial date, in October of 2018, in order to change counsel.

The trial stems from charges relating to an incident in August of 2017.

A new trial date will be determined on Dec. 11.
