Former Alberta minor hockey volunteer charged with sexual assault appears in court

A former volunteer with the Sundre Minor Hockey Association, facing several charges related to an alleged sexual assault involving teenagers, made her first court appearance on Monday.

Alexa Suitor appeared at the Alberta Provincial Court in Didsbury on Monday morning.

On April 8, the 32-year-old was arrested and charged with sexual interference, sexual assault and four counts of making sexually explicit material available to a child.

Parents in the community told CTV News all the victims were all under 16 years old at the time of the offences, which allegedly took place at a New Year’s Eve party.

One accused Suitor of taking “their innocence away.”

An emailed statement from the association said Suitor was a volunteer who was not directly involved with the players.

It said she did serve in an executive role, but has since been removed from that position pending the outcome of the court proceedings.

During Monday’s hearing the defence requested disclosure from the Crown.

Suitor’s case was adjourned until May 27.
