One trial date has been set for a 59-year-old Comox Valley resident who faces 10 charges of sexual interference of a person younger than 16 at the Comox Valley Aquatic Centre.

Wolfgang Kurt Busch will face two breaches of undertaking or recognizance charges at his trial set for Dec. 8, confirmed defence lawyer Jordan Watt, acting Thursday as agent for Busch’s laywer Dale Marshall.

In February, provincial court judge Peter Doherty imposed a $10,000 cash bail or a $50,000 surety on Busch because he breached his conditions when he left the country.

In March, Marshall entered pleas of not guilty for his client on all charges.

Busch’s next court appearance is scheduled for Sept. 29, following a three week adjournment, to set a trial confirmation hearing for the remaining 10 charges.
