A Saskatchewan Judge has found a former Smithers gymnastics coach not guilty on sexual assault and exploitation charges.
71 year-old Marcel Dubroy was acquitted of the charges on Friday (Oct 14) at the Regina Court of King’s Bench.
His trial started in June before it took a break and then resumed in September.
Dubroy was arrested at his home in Smithers in May 2019 relating to the charges that stemmed from Saskatchewan that involved a now 34 year-old woman.
According to police, the incidents took place between 2002 and 2008.
The victim said that Dubroy sexually assaulted her over a number of years.
When he was arrested he was a gymnastics coach at Saltos Gymnastics Club.
Dubroy was suspended nationwide from teaching gymnastics shortly after the police investigation began.
