Donovan Carter (seen above) returns to court in late March on a peace bond matter.

Carter case to resume in March

The trial of a former Nelson man accused of harassing MLA Michelle Mungall has been put over for another three and a half months.

The trial of a former Nelson man accused of harassing MLA Michelle Mungall has been put over for another three and a half months.

The Crown is seeking a peace bond against Donovan Carter, now living in Comox, who will return to court in Nelson on March 30.

By then it will have been more than a year since a central incident in the case, in which Carter held up a sign in front of Mungall at a trade forum that read: “Michelle, less boob tube, more Crown land.”

The two sides have argued over the sign’s meaning, and whether it should have caused Mungall any concern.

Court also heard a series of voicemails Carter left for Mungall late last year and early this year, which she says made her fear for her safety.
