Teen charged with sex assault released

The teen charged with sexual assault following an incident at the Castlegar Complex last month has been released from custody pending his next court date on April 20.

The 16-year-old, who allegedly accosted a female in the women’s change room on Feb. 7, was released on an undertaking which allows a young person to stay out of detention, according to Sgt. Laurel Mathew of the Castlegar RCMP.

His conditions require that he: keep the peace and be of good behaviour; remain at his home with his parents 24 hours a day except when in company of one or both parents or another approved adult; have no contact or communication with the victim; respond to the phone or attend the door of his home 24 hours a day upon the demand of a Peace Officer that calls or attends to ensure compliance with his curfew; and refrain from attending the Castlegar Complex or consuming drugs or alcohol.
