A jury will not hear from the former forensic psychiatrist accused of sexually assaulting two male patients under his care.
Defence lawyer Chris Archer, who represents Aubrey Levin, advised Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Beth Hughes on Friday that he will call no evidence on behalf of his client.
Two men testified during the two-week trial that Levin, 74, fondled their genitals during appointments at his office in Peter Lougheed Centre in 2009.
They also testified at the opening trial in 2012 that resulted in a hung jury.
The trial continues Tuesday with final arguments.
Hughes will give final instructions to the jury Wednesday.

Earlier from the Calgary Sun:
“Witness describes alleged sexual assault at trial of noted psychiatrist Dr. Aubrey Levin”
Note: I am often e-mailed information about the case from people who say they know a lot and/or have written to higher-up government officials about their own experiences directly with Levin. The reason I refrain from publishing that information here, is
(a) This is an ongoing case and for the sake of the jury and legal issues, such information should not be printed here, whether true or rumoured.
(b) This site is to ask questions, raise awareness, and document the infamous conduct of Dr. Levin both regarding his past in South Africa and his present charges in Canada, as well as similar crimes. It is always, always correct to place legitimate information regarding the case written by professional journalists in legitimate publications. It is their job to investigate and write, while it is the job of those with information to pass on their leads to journalists and let them take it from there.
In the near future, I hope to provide links to legitimate organizations set up to help victims of conversion therapy, abuse by psychiatrists who misused their power and abuse by clinical narcissists. But apart from the “how” of healing, I’m also interested on the “why” of the reason Machiavellians and white-collar psychopaths can get away with crimes like these.
