South Molton soldier attack case delayed by Arctic training
The trial of a South Molton man accused of attempting to wound an off duty soldier has been delayed because the alleged victim is on a training exercise abroad.
Lewis Hutter, 25, was due to stand trial at Exeter Crown Court next month but the case has been put back to August because the key witness is not available.
Hutter, of Moorland Rise, South Molton, denies attempting to cause grievous bodily harm to Ashley Harding during an incident in the town on August 22 last year.
Judge Francis Gilbert, QC said the original trial date of April 8 would have to be vacated because Mr Harding is a serviceman who will be training in Norway until April 30.
