Judge denies American coach bail

Bail has been denied 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.

Judge J. Cartwright ruled Friday, after delaying the matter for more than a week, that Jason Christopher Paur, 43, must be detained.

As the bail hearing is under a publication ban, Cartwright’s reasons for denying bail cannot be published.

Cartwright appeared in Vernon Provincial Court Friday by video link. Paur was in attendance for the matter.

Crown had asked that Paur be detained in custody while defence asked for his release.

Paur 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 was found by students in a room occupied by girls at Silver Star.

An arraignment hearing for Paur has been scheduled for Wednesday in Vernon Provincial Court.
