A 68-year-old Pierrefonds man has pleaded not guilty to charges of indecent assault against a minor in a case dating back to the '70s.
Howard Krupp did not have to be in court for the official arraignment. He was represented by his lawyer who entered a not guilty plea to two counts of indecent assault. Krupp's lawyer received the evidence in the case this morning. The crimes are alleged to have happened between 1970 and 1976 when the victim was underaged.
The next court date is in June.
The crown also confirmed that Krupp has signed a peace bond in connection with charges of criminally harassing minors in Kirkland. He was arrested last November. The case is not related to the new charges.
Krupp has to be on good behaviour and follow other conditions for 12 months.
Krupp admitted that police had reason to believe that he would commit a sex crime against children.
