Sheriff charged following alleged assault at Fredericton courthouse

A plea hearing scheduled for this morning has been adjourned for a New Brunswick sheriff charged with assaulting a man at the Fredericton courthouse.

CBC says the hearing for deputy team lead Dale Gene Kozak was postponed to January 31st after the defence asked for more time to review the disclosure.

Fredericton police charged Kozak with summary assault in connection with an incident at the courthouse where Kozak works last August.

He is on administrative leave pending the outcome.
