Wyberton man Dean Everitt’s trial for assault by beating and criminal damage charges will be delayed until November.
The 44-year-old anti-immigration campaigner arrived at Boston Magistrates’ Court this morning expecting a trial.
He had previously pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault by beating, also denying damaging a garden gate at a Parthian Avenue address.
However, it was adjourned because two of the defendant’s witnesses were unable to commit to a full day in court, because they would have to leave to pick their children up from school at 3pm.
Therefore, the case was put back to a day-and-a-half-long trial on November 6 and 7.
Mr Everitt, of Parthian Avenue, was given conditional bail. He must not contact either Andrew Niblett or Gail Hurst, directly or indirectly, and he must not attend Ostler Walk, Kirton.
