Serial rapist Froese kept behind bars for now
Serial rapist Jack Froese will remain behind bars after Kamloops provincial court Judge Sheri Donegan refused to release the 31-year-old.
Froese, who has been living with family in a Valleyview home since his release from prison on May 15, was arrested on Monday, July 4, at the home in which he has been living.
Kamloops RCMP Const. Bernie Ward said the arrest came after Froese allegedly missed a curfew check on Friday, July 1. Mounties returned to the home on Monday and made the arrest.
In court on Friday, July 8, Donegan ordered Froese to remain in custody following arguments to do so by Crown counsel Chris Balison and arguments against by defence lawyer Don Campbell.
Monday marked the second time Froese was arrested for an alleged breach of conditions since moving to Kamloops.
On May 17, he was picked up after an acquaintance told police he saw Froese using drugs.
He was released on bail in May and is scheduled to stand trial on that breach charge in September.
Froese will return to court via videolink on Monday, July 11, to set future dates for his latest arrest on breaching court orders.
At the time of his arrest on July 4, was bound by a 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew and barred from contacting any of his previous victims or entering “a private residence, dormitory, hotel, inn or other building where persons sleep or reside,” according to police.
Froese was also subject to conditions barring him from drinking, using drugs, accessing pornography or being in possession of weapons, disguises and restraint devices.
Froese has a lengthy criminal record, including two convictions relating to violent sexual assaults.
In 2003, he drunkenly attempted to rape an acquaintance after she turned down his sexual advances.
In 2004, while living in Saskatoon, he raped a hotel worker at knife-point for 25 minutes.
He was later arrested on the campus of the University of Saskatchewan, carrying a list of names of female athletes and cheerleaders at the school.
