The case against a 29-year-old man charged with indecent exposure was adjourned Wednesday for three weeks so he can get a lawyer.
Duty counsel lawyer Scott Hadford requested the adjournment in Fort Macleod provincial court.
James Jonathan Bryshun is charged with two counts of indecent exposure to persons under the age of 16.
Hadford on Wednesday gave Bryshun a referral to Legal Aid, which will pay for a lawyer if he demonstrates financial need.
Judge Paul Pharo granted Hadford’s request to adjourn the case to Wednesday, Oct. 9 in Fort Macleod provincial court.

The man appeared before a justice of the peace after being charged and was released on conditions that require him not to have contact with young people.
