RED DEER, Alta. — Former MLA Don MacIntyre has pleaded guilty to sexual interference and a charge of sexual assault will be withdrawn.
The former Alberta politician, who was in Red Deer court today, was accused of sex charges involving a minor.
MacIntyre, who is 63, resigned in February of last year after he was charged with sexual assault and sexual interference.

MacIntyre was first elected in 2015 for the Wildrose Party, which merged with the Progressive Conservatives in 2017.
He was the party’s critic for electricity and renewables.
A publication ban was initially placed on MacIntyre’s name, but was lifted following a challenge by several media outlets.
His alleged victim cannot be identified.
