Brian Dodd was ordered to remain in custody following a show-cause hearing April 26.
Dodd was back in Estevan provincial court after breaching conditions of a previous release. He faces two charges of sexual interference, which alleges sexual touching of a person under 16 years of age, making child pornography, possessing child pornography and a breach of conditions.
Dodd was first released from custody by the consent of the Crown prosecutor on March 8, after his initial arrest. His first show-cause hearing was at Thursday’s appearance.
A publication ban protects all evidence heard during the hearing, but Judge Karl Bazin made the decision to keep Dodd in custody until his charges are dealt with. He will next appear on May 7.
In other court proceedings, Estevan resident Jeffrey Mitchell pleaded guilty to indecency after exposing himself to two females.
The first incident occurred April 23, when a newspaper carrier approached his residence. The 38-year-old was sitting in a recliner outside with his zipper down and his genitals exposed.
The carrier noticed when she handed him the newspaper, and the Crown prosecutor said she asked him to “kindly put that thing away.”
Mitchell then apologized to the woman.
The second incident occurred when a postal worker was delivering mail to Mitchell’s house. As the postal worker approached the property, he got up and walked over to receive the mail, at which point the woman noticed he was exposed.
Mitchell has a previous record for indecent acts and has served jail time before. Bazin sentenced him to nine months in jail, with two consecutive four-and-a-half month jail terms.
In other news, a show-cause hearing was held for David Anderson, who was in custody following a breach of previous release conditions.
Anderson has been previously charged with assault, forcible confinement, uttering threats, break and enter, and theft, along with breaching his conditions. Bazin ruled against Anderson’s release.
After the show-cause hearing, Anderson pleaded not guilty to the charges, and the Crown elected to proceed by indictment, which comes with stiffer penalties if there is a conviction. He will remain in custody until the matters go to trial on June 4.
