A Halifax lawyer’s new drug trial is set for next year.

Anne Calder is accused of smuggling drugs to a client in jail. Her lawyer appeared in Nova Scotia Supreme Court Thursday and her trial was set for Jan. 10, 2011.

Calder’s first trial began in early April, but the proceedings were stopped by Supreme Court Justice Peter Bryson after new evidence came up.

Calder, 56, was charged last July after guards at the Central Nova Scotia Correction Facility in Dartmouth allegedly caught her passing an envelope containing drugs to an inmate.

She was charged with trafficking the painkiller hydromorphone. Other charges of possessing hydromorphone and trafficking marijuana were laid after police searched her west-end Halifax home. Calder is not currently practising law.
