Caza trial remains closed
A sign banning the public hung on the door of Courtroom 5C at the Kamloops Law Courts on Tuesday, Feb. 14, as the trial of a convicted pedophile began.
David Caza, 48, is facing child pornography, luring and breach charges.
His B.C. Supreme Court trial got underway in-camera as the judge decides whether he will hear third-party evidence.
The allegations date back to a search of Caza’s home in January of 2010.
Caza was convicted in 2001 of sexually assaulting three teenaged boys, and again in 2005 for possession of child pornography.
Prior to his arrest, he had been living on court-ordered conditions requiring he stay 100 metres away from schools and parks, and barring him from possessing “visual representations of persons who reasonably appear to be under the age of 16 years.”
The in-camera portion of the trial is expected to end later this week.
