Advocates say a shortage of trial judges in Nova Scotia is leading to uncertainty and continued distress for the victim in a high-profile sexual assault case.
Brent Alexander Julien is accused of sexually assaulting Carrie Low nearly five years ago.
Low has alleged two men confined and sexually assaulted her on the outskirts of Halifax on May 18, 2018, as she drifted in and out of consciousness.
Low, who sought and received a court order permitting the use of her name, has also alleged that police mishandled key evidence in her case, and has pursued a lawsuit against police and a police complaints process.
