Sex offences case adjourned
Man found guilty of multiple sex offences will be sentenced in April
A P.E.I. man who was found guilty of six sex offences involving his stepdaughters had his case adjourned until April.
The man, who The Guardian has chosen not to name to protect the identities of his victims, was found guilty of a total of eight offences in P.E.I. Supreme Court in May 2015.
He was scheduled to appear before Justice Gordon Campbell on Tuesday in Charlottetown for sentencing, but the case was adjourned because of a delay in getting an assessment for his pre-sentence report.
The man was found guilty after a trial that dealt with offences dating as far back as 2005.
Those offences include sexual touching of a minor, invitation to sexual touching by a minor, assault and sexual assault.
He was found not guilty on one count of invitation to sexual touching.
During his brief appearance Tuesday, the man sat by himself at the defence table without his lawyer present.
He will be back in court April 19 to hear his sentence.
