Pictou County man accused of recording sexual assaults of children sees case adjourned until June
The case of a Pictou County man who is accused of recording the sexual assaults of children has been adjourned.
The Chronicle Herald reports nothing more will be done about a disputed psychiatric assessment of 19-year-old Brett Andrew MacBeth, who is accused of sexually assaulting two children and recording the assaults, which allegedly took place in 2016 and 2017 in Hants County.
MacBeth is charged with two counts each of sexual assault, sexual interference, and making child pornography.
The newspaper reports that he had made an unsuccessful attempt in March to have a Windsor provincial court judge order a second assessment because he felt the psychiatrist who performed it was biased against him, but on Friday nothing more was said about getting the second report completed.
Defence lawyer Chrystal MacAulay asked that the case be adjourned until next month.
