Cross-country ski coach enters not guilty pleas

The American cross-country ski coach from Seattle, arrested in December after allegedly putting a video camera in the room of female students at Silver Star Mountain Resort, has pleaded not guilty to all 10 counts he faces.

Jason Christopher Paur, 43, appeared in Vernon Provincial Court Wednesday by video conference, and sat quietly as his lawyer, Richard Barton, entered the not guilty pleas.

He has been in custody since his arrest and was denied bail last week.

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.

The two sides will meet with the judicial case manager to fix a date for a trial, which both sides anticipate will require three court days.
