A preliminary hearing gets underway Monday in Prince Albert for Jared John Charles.
The St. Louis man was arrested in connection with an 8 year old girl’s abduction in a playground in early July.
He is facing 9 charges that include kidnapping, forcible confinement and aggravated sexual assault.
The 19-year-old was arrested after an Amber Alert was issued July 4th.
In an unrelated incident last year, an Amber Alert involving Charles was issued after two young boys were taken from La Ronge.
Police had said Charles was walking with the boys in the town shortly before their disappearance in September of 2016.
The boys were eventually found in St. Louis and returned to their families. They weren’t harmed.
Charles received three years probation for breaching his conditions.
He was also ordered to stay away from children under 16 and was entered into the National Sex Offender Registry.
