Hide and seek leads to sexual assault
Already serving a jail sentence for a violent sexual assault, a Prince George man was convicted last week for similar attack that took place just three months earlier.
Kelsey Allard was found guilty Friday in B.C. Supreme Court of sexual assault causing bodily harm and unlawful confinement. He was acquitted of attempting to choke to overcome resistance.
The four-day trial concluded in March and a sentencing date will be set later this week. A routine publication ban is in place on any information that would identify the victim. According to the reasons for judgment, the victim testified the two had been drinking at a Prince George home in February 2010 when she suggested they play a game of hide-and-seek.
She testified that after he found her in the basement, the pair sat down on a nearby bed and Allard kissed her against her will.The woman said she ran to the upper floor, but that Allard dragged her back down two flights of stairs then sexually assaulted her.
She reported the incident to police the next day.In April, Allard, who is in his late 20s, was sentenced to 23 months in jail on charges of sexual assault, attempting to choke, uttering threats and bail breaches for a May 2010 incident.
In that case, which also went to trial, the attack took place in a downtown alley with a woman he had met earlier in the evening at The Generator nightclub.
