The trial for a former RCMP member facing three historical sexual assault charges in Yorkton, has come to an abrupt end.
62 year-old Alan Davidson pleaded guilty to two counts of Sexual Assault, while the third count was stayed Thursday morning.
The alleged victim of the third assault had become visibly upset with the defence lawyer’s cross-examination, and was finding it difficult to continue his testimony.
However, after the announcement of the plea deal, the victim burst into the courtroom, demanding closure from Davidson, and had to be restrained by police.
Sentencing submissions have been scheduled for Friday, but they’re complicated by the fact that Davidson was found guilty of five similar charges in BC, and has yet to be sentenced on those.
Between March and December of 2014, three individuals came forward and reported being sexually assaulted as youth while they were living in or visiting Yorkton, between 1987 and 1991.
