CALGARY - The jury members in a sexual assault trial of a former Calgary psychiatrist Aubrey Levin are being asked to decide if they can sit weeks longer than originally scheduled.

Levin, who is 73, is accused of sexually assaulting 10 former patients that were ordered to see him by the courts.

Levin, who parted ways with his original lawyer last week, has now hired a new lawyer after just a couple of days of representing himself.

Court of Queen's Bench Justice Donna Shelley told the seven-man, five-woman jury that the case will be adjourned for a couple of weeks to give Levin's new lawyer time to prepare.

She says that means that the estimated end to the trial will be delayed from the middle of November to as late as Dec. 10.

If at least three of the 12 jurors indicate they cannot continue it could result in a mistrial.
