A preliminary inquiry to determine whether a Corner Brook man will have to go to trial in relation to sex charges will conclude March 3.
The hearing in the John William Flynn case was held in provincial court in Corner Brook Monday before Judge Wayne Gorman.
All the evidence was presented, but Flynn’s lawyer Sandi MacKinnon requested more time to review the matter before giving her closing submission. Crown attorney Trina Simms is prosecuting the case.
Flynn, 47, is charged with sexual assault, sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching involving a boy under the age of 16 in relation to offences alleged to have taken place in Corner Brook between January and March 2012. A fourth charge, namely a sexual assault of a second male, is alleged to have taken place between Jan. 1, 2009 and April 30, 2011.
Flynn has pleaded not guilty to all four of the charges against him.
