Sexual assault case adjourned three weeks

FRANK MCTIGHE, MACLEOD GAZETTE EDITOR
The case against a Claresholm man facing numerous charges of sexual assault, sexual exploitation and sexual interference will be back in court Wednesday, March 7.
A lawyer for the accused was in Fort Macleod provincial court on Wednesday seeking a three-week adjournment.
John Dziadyk was acting as agent for the accused’s lawyer, Jim Lutz of Calgary, to ask for the adjournment so a pre-trail conference can take place.
The man, who is not being named due to a publication ban to protect the identity of his victims, pleaded not guilty in January.
A date has to be arranged for the trial, which is expected to take two to three days.
The man was charged following an investigation by Claresholm RCMP in November after five people in their middle to late teens alleged numerous sexual assault incidents over a period of 11 months.
The man is charged with 10 counts of sexual assault, eight counts of sexual exploitation and three counts of sexual interference.
