SUMMERSIDE – The case against Mount Royal potato farmer Warren Ellis has been adjourned until Feb. 13.
He was scheduled to be sentenced last week but that was adjourned.
Ellis, 57, pleaded guilty in December to two of the six outstanding charges against him and his company Warren Ellis Produce Inc.
Ellis pleaded guilty to one Federal Fisheries Act count of allowing a deleterious substance to enter a waterway, and one charge under the provincial Crop Rotation Act of planting potatoes in the same field twice in less than three years.
The four other charges, three counts under the Crop Rotation Act against Ellis and one count under the Federal Fisheries Act against his company, were dropped.
