Kamloops man pleads guilty to two counts of sexual assault

·1 min read

A Kamloops man Mounties were investigating in January following a sexual assault has been handed a two-year jail sentence.

Cody Joseph Jack, 24, pleaded guilty in March to two counts of sexual assault and two breaches of probation.

One of the two sexual assault charges was in connection with a Jan.10 incident in which a woman reported to police being sexually assaulted by a man who asked her for a ride.

Jack approached her parked vehicle at Riverside Park that morning, claiming to be injured and asking for a ride. The Good Samaritan agreed to give him the ride, during which Jack sexually assaulted her by touching her leg and crotch.

Kamloops Mounties responded to the area where the woman had dropped off the suspect and arrested Jack. At the time, RCMP issued a press release, stating police believed there may have been more victims.

The other sexual assault Jack pleaded guilty to involved him groping a female grocery store employee in Valleyview on Jan. 7.

He was sentenced to 628 days in jail for the sexual assaults and 90 days for the two breaches, followed by a three-year probation term.
