A Red Deer Mountie is facing three trials instead of one on charges related to alleged sexual assaults.
Charges were laid against Const. Jason Tress in March 2017 after the Alberta Serious Incident Response Teams investigated an allegation that an RCMP officer sexually assaulted a woman in 2016 at the Red Deer detachment.
During the investigation, two other alleged incidents involving women came to light.
It is alleged two of the three incidents occurred while the officer was on duty.
Tress is facing charges of one count of sexual assault with a weapon and two counts each of sexual assault and breach of trust.
Two of the alleged incidents occurred while the officer was posted in Red Deer. He was at a rural detachment when the alleged incident in 2012 occurred.
Tress, then an eight-year member, was suspended with pay in August 2016 as a result of the initial allegations.
A nine-day, judge-alone trial on all his charges had originally been set to begin on June 17 in Red Deer.
Two trials are set to take place in June and another in November.
