A former Vernon Judo Club coach facing three charges in relation to child pornography has had his matter adjourned.

Nicholas Jacob, the defence lawyer of Bryan McLachlan, asked a Justice of the Peace for a two-week adjournment in Vernon Law Courts Sept. 13.

“(Crown) indicated there is some further disclosure coming that is going to impact whether this might resolve or not,” Jacob said in his reasoning for adjournment.
