Sex assault sentencing set
Sentencing for a 39-year-old Red Deer man convicted of sexually assaulting his stepdaughter will come just before Christmas.
The man, whose name is withheld because of a court-ordered publication ban protecting the identity of the victim, was found guilty of two incidents that took place in August 2011 when the victim was 13-years-old. On Nov. 8 , Justice Keith Yamauchi found him guilty.
Appearing before Justice Ron Stevens in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench on Monday, defence counsel Kevin Sproule asked that the matter be set for Dec. 20. He said there would amendments to the judgment and sentencing arguments.
Stevens agreed to a Dec. 20 sentencing in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench.
