New sex charges sought against Alberni man

RCMP in Port Alberni have recommended a sexual assault charge against a man who was awaiting sentencing for previous sex charges.

RCMP Cpl. Jen Allan confirmed that Alberni resident Shawn Pater was charged with an incident that occurred on Dec. 23, 2012.

Crown Counsel Gordon Baines said that Pater is in custody and is scheduled to appear in Port Alberni Provincial Court via video on Thursday, Jan. 14.

Pater was already scheduled to appear in court Thursday for a 2011 incident.

He was originally to have been sentenced late last year for that matter. But the courts were awaiting a pre-sentence report and forensic assessment report on Pater, which are to be reviewed on Thursday.
