Lack of interpreter means Burton man charged with assault will return to court
A Burton man facing a charge of assault has had his case adjourned.
Anton Tolok, 27, of Curzon Way, was due to answer a charge of assaulting Dale Fessey at Burton Magistrates' Court yesterday. The alleged offence was said to have taken place on August 9.
However, magistrates at the Horninglow Street courthouse were not happy for the case to proceed without an interpreter present. Tolok did have a friend to assist him with his English, but the case was adjourned.
Tolok, whose first language is Russian but who also speaks Polish, will return to court on September 4 to answer the charge.
