MOOSE JAW — Craik’s former town administrator will return to provincial court in January to face dozens of charges of fraud, representing more than $41,000 in alleged misspent funds.
The case against Jeffrey Todd Murray has been delayed for the sixth straight time — this time, at the crown’s request.
Regional crown prosecutor Brian Hendrickson told the Leader he requested the adjournment in Moose Jaw provincial court on Dec. 7.
Rob Parker, the crown prosecutor in charge of the case, was not available to attend court that day, Hendrickson said. The request was granted.
Five previous adjournments were requested by Murray’s lawyer, Gail Wartman, who sought additional time for disclosure, explaining that a large volume of documentation was involved in the charges.
