Sex of­fences case ad­journed

Man found guilty of mul­ti­ple sex of­fences will be sen­tenced in April

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE PROVINCE -

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.
