The date has been set back yet again for a military judge to render his verdict in a court martial trial held in Charlottetown last month.

Judge Lt.-Col. Louis-Vincent d’Auteuil is now looking at Feb. 27 to deliver his verdict on the four charges that are facing Todd Bannister, an army reserve captain.

Bannister faces two counts of behaving in a disgraceful manner and two counts of conduct to the prejudice of good order and discipline.

The charges stem from two incidents involving former female cadet Breanna MacKinnon while Bannister was commanding officer of the 148 Charlottetown Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps.

In one incident, Bannister is alleged to have vulgarly propositioned the MacKinnon to engage in sexual intercourse on his desk.
