Brandon man faces sexual assault charges

A prominent member of Brandon’s business community faces allegations that he sexually assaulted a girl multiple times 14 to 18 years ago.

The accused — a high-ranking, award-winning official with a financial company in Brandon — wasn’t actually present in court for his “first appearance” on Monday.

Instead, a local lawyer spoke to the matter on behalf of Winnipeg lawyer Richard Wolson and the case was adjourned to Aug. 30.

The man is charged with four counts of sexual assault, one count of sexual interference and three counts of sexual exploitation.

It’s alleged that the assaults were committed at a number of communities during four separate time spans between Dec. 1, 1994, and May 31, 1998.

They all relate to the same complainant.

The accused and complainant were reportedly known to each other, but no details of the case have been presented in court.

The Brandon Sun has chosen not to name the accused as, contrary to law, it might identify the complainant who was a youth at the time of the alleged offences.

The accused is not in custody.
