That’s because the lawyer for Bernard White, 69, will be filing a charter application.
Judge Colin Flynn agreed to instead hold a one-day trial on Nov. 3 at St. John’s provincial court.
White, who lives in St. John’s, was initially charged last year as part of an international child pornography bust spanning more than 50 countries. Hundreds of arrests were made, including 108 in Canada.
St. John’s defence lawyer Rosellen Sullivan is representing White, who was initially one of two men charged in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Charges were later dropped against the other man.
