A Revelstoke man charged with a number of disturbing offences, including making child pornography, was denied bail in court on Dec. 5.

The man, whose name cannot be revealed due to a publication ban designed to protect the victims, appeared in court via video from Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre (KRCC).

He is charged with offences including making, accessing and possessing child pornography; sexual assault, touching of someone under 16 and sexual exploitation.

The accused sat hunched over in a video room at KRCC, dressed in a prison-issued red shirt, as Crown prosecutor Bill Hilderman laid out the evidence for why the man should remain in jail as his case proceeds through the courts. Lawyer Melissa Klages represented the accused and argued the conditions for his potential release.

Judge Edmond de Walle sided with the Crown and ruled that the man should remain behind bars.

The contents of the bail hearing are subject to a publication ban. Despite that, the court room was left open and several members of the public were on hand to hear of the serious crimes the man is accused of committing.

There have been suggestions that further charges could be coming.

The man is due to reappear in court on Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013, when he is expected to enter a plea.
