Bulletin: Dr. Aubrey Levin: Evidence issue stalls sex assault trial for Calgory court doctor: Calgary Sun;

STORY: "Evidence issue stalls sex assault trial for Calgary doctor Aubrey Levin," by reporter Kevin Martin, published in the Calgary Sun on November 22, 2012.
GIST:  "One of the men allegedly sexually assaulted by Calgary psychiatrist Dr. Aubrey Levin was being treated for suicidal thoughts, court heard Wednesday. The witness, who can’t be named, said he was referred to the forensic unit of the Peter Lougheed Centre after going to Rockyview hospital in 2009 for mental health issues. He said during a five-day admission to the psychiatric unit, he was treated by Levin. But the man’s testimony was derailed before he got into any details of any alleged sexual abuse by Levin. Defence counsel Chris Archer said he had an issue with an appointment card the witness produced which had an addition on it by the patient.  As a result, jurors in the six-week-old case were dismissed early once again, leaving Justice Donna Shelley, Archer and Crown prosecutor Bill Wister to deal with it. Jurors — who have spent the vast majority of the trial either waiting in the jury room or sent home — were told to return Thursday."
