Trial date postponed for deputy leader of Ashfield council
The deputy leader of Ashfield council’s trial for harassment without violence, which was due to start next Monday, has been postponed, a court has heard.
Thomas Hollis' solicitor, Rachel Gowans, told District Judge Leo Pyle the two day trial had to be vacated as his barrister will be unavailable because another case is overrunning.
Prosecutor Emma Cornell opposed the application at Nottingham Magistrates Court, on Friday.
It is alleged that Mr Hollis, 27, of Wild Hill, Sutton, committed two offences of harassment without violence, on Windmill Close, Sutton, between May 2 and May 25, last year.
He denies both of the charges.
A pre-trial review was scheduled for October 13, at Nottingham Magistrates Court, ahead of a new trial, now due to commence on November 3.
Mr Hollis also denies driving without due care and attention and resisting arrest. A separate trial to deal with those matters is set for Thursday, July 29.
