Assault on an officer trial to resume in the November

The trail of Fiona Munro, who claims she was assaulted by an RCMP officer, is set to continue in November.

The trial of an Osoyoos woman charged with assaulting a police officer has been adjourned until November.

Osoyoos Const. Ian Patrick MacNeil testified in provincial court when the trial began on July 14 about events stemming from a traffic stop in September 2014 where he alleges Munro assaulted him.

Court records show that the trial has been adjourned to Nov. 18 at 9:30 a.m. at the Penticton Courthouse.

Crown counsel told the Western News that MacNeil was the last witness to be called by crown.

Munro’s defence attorney, Michael Welsh, said that scheduling and coordination are the reasons for the lengthy delay.

“That’s what happens in the court process, things don’t move all that quickly sometimes,” Welsh said.
