Crown getting judge robes

A longtime Kelowna Crown prosecutor is off to Northern B.C. after being appointed as a provincial court judge.

Martin Nadon will be sworn in on April 6, 2021 and will be assigned to the northern region to hold chambers in Prince George.

He has practiced law for almost 30 years, beginning his career in Nanaimo before opening his own practice in Kelowna five years later.

Since 2001 he has been a Crown prosecutor in Kelowna, representing the B.C. Attorney General in a range of trials, including the murder of Jonathan Bacon.

He was also the lead prosecutor in a manslaughter trial underway in Kelowna over a stabbing on Canada Day in 2018. BC Prosecution Service spokesman Dan McLaughlin said a new prosecutor will now take over that case now that Nadon's appointment has been announced.
