Historic Sexual Assault Case Goes to Trial

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: A sexual assault case dating back over a decade finally went to trial Monday in Court of Queen's Bench in Lethbridge.

 

A 53-year old former Taber resident is accused of sexually assaulting his two step sons between 1995 and 2001.

 

The victim who first came forward with the allegations in 2010 took the stand to start day one of the trial, saying that the abuse pushed him into a life of drugs and crime and prevented him from finishing his education.

 

He added that the abuse started shortly after his mother married the accused when he was only 8-years old. He noted that he finally ran away from home, which then shifted the abuse to his younger brother.

 

During cross examination the defence suggested that the alleged victim may have had financial reasons for making the accusations, and that it could also have something to do with past abuse from his biological father. It was noted however that the abuse from his biological father was never sexual.

 

The identity of the accused can not be revealed to protect the identity of the victims.

 

The case is scheduled to run until Thursday.
