The trial for former New Plymouth wheel clamper Daniel Clout has been adjourned after a day of evidence.
Clout, in his 30s, has denied three charges of operating illegally as a clamper.
In the judge-alone trial yesterday a series of witnesses, including the New Plymouth Mayor Andrew Judd, told of their experiences with Clout. Some witnesses accepted they had been illegally parking at the time when they were clamped in either the Richmond Centre or King St car park.
The prosecution is believed to be the first taken by the Department of Internal Affairs under the Private Security Personnel and Private Investigators Act 2010.
Judge Allan Roberts ruled the trial would continue on March 31.
