The defence lawyer in the Martin Gentles case will present his legal argument for delay on July 6, 2015 in BC Supreme Court in Williams Lake.
Lawyers and a B.C. Supreme Court Justice made the date in Williams Lake Court Monday.
On Feb. 3, Justice John D. Truscott acquitted Gentles of five charges related to impaired and dangerous driving causing the death of Rayel MacDonald and bodily harm to Alysha Mullett.
Gentles was found guilty of two charges — impaired driving and fleeing the scene of the accident which took place in Williams Lake on April 22, 2012.
Walker, however, is filing for delay in which he is expected to argue that his client was not tried within a reasonable time.
If the Justice finds there was delay and it infringed on Gentles’ rights, his conviction could be dismissed.
