A man who cannot be named because of a publication ban will stand trial for incest and sexual assault in Grand Forks later this year.
The man did not appear at his arraignment hearing at Grand Forks Provincial Court on Wednesday, Feb. 10. He was represented by his defence counsel, who spoke to Judge Phillip Seagram via phone. The man has pleaded not guilty to both counts. He will be tried by a provincial court judge, yet to be assigned.
Judge Seagram put the case forward to March 9, when he said the court would schedule a two-day trial at the city courthouse.
