Kamloops man charged with sexual offences against youths

·1 min read

A Kamloops man who formerly coached youth sports is facing three charges of sexual offences with underage complainants.

The man cannot be named due to a court-ordered publication ban protecting the identity of victims under the age of 18 in connection with an offence committed by an adult.

Court documents obtained by KTW state the man is charged with internet luring, sexual interference and sexual assault for offences that allegedly took place between 2017 and 2019.

It is not clear if the man’s position as a coach played a role in the alleged offences.

The man is no longer coaching youth sports.

His next court date is expected to be Nov. 12 to elect a mode of trial.
