Decision delayed in coach case

An American cross-country ski coach from a Seattle private school, arrested in December after allegedly putting a video camera in the room of female students at Silver Star Mountain Resort, will spend at least one more week in custody.

Judge J. Cartwright announced Thursday at the end of a 45-minute bail hearing into the matter against Jason C. Paur that she will need a week to make a decision.

A publication ban prevents media from reporting on what happened at the bail hearing.

Crown counsel is seeking detention for Paur, 43, while defence is asking for his release from custody.

Paur, 43, is facing 10 counts under the Criminal Code of Canada: three counts of secretly observing/recording nudity or sexual activity; three counts of break-and-enter a dwelling with intent or commit; two counts of making or publishing child pornography; and one count each of accessing child pornography and possession of child pornography.

He was arrested after the discovery of a video camera allegedly belonging to him, found by students in a room occupied by girls at Silver Star.

No date has been set for Cartwright’s decision.
