Crucial medical evidence which the defence hopes will reduce convicted millionaire Ken Carter’s stalking sentence is not yet complete, his lawyer said Friday.

Defence counsel Gavin Wolch said he is still awaiting a report from Calgary Dr. Sarb Grewal, which he says will help him decipher Russian medical records on his client.

Justice Glenn Poelman reluctantly granted Wolch a further delay, but only on conditions set out by Crown prosecutor Katherine Love.

Love noted Wolch was to have all documentation in support of his bid to re-open Carter’s sentencing hearing by Feb. 14.

As a result, she said she will require at least a month to go over any new expert reports Wolch produces with the possibility of filing her own expert response.

Love also said she has lined up witnesses from both provincial and federal correctional services to give evidence on how prisoners with medical conditions can be accommodated.

Carter, 59, was convicted of criminal harassment for hiring current and past Calgary Police Service members to conduct intense surveillance on his ex-girlfriend, Akele Taylor, during a child custody dispute.

Retired police officer Steve Walton was sentenced to three years for his role in the police corruption case, but Carter’s sentencing was delayed for months after he failed to return to Calgary after falling ill in Russia.

Wolch earlier said his client’s health concerns should be a factor for Poelman to consider in determining an appropriate sentence for Carter.

The lawyer has until Wednesday to file anything from Grewal and a hearing date will be set next Friday.
