Sagmoen returns to court

A man accused of threatening a sex trade worker will be in a Vernon courtroom tomorrow, and he will not be alone.

A rally is planned for Thursday morning at the 27th Street courthouse when Curtis Wayne Sagmoen is scheduled to appear before a justice of the peace for a procedural hearing.

Rally organizer Meagan Louis said many other people plan to be at the courthouse to denounce violence against women.

Sagmoen, 36, is facing several charges, including intentionally discharging a firearm and uttering threats to a sex trade worker, in relation to an incident in August.

Sagmoen is also connected to a farm where the remains of Traci Genereaux, 18, were located last month.

The farm, on Salmon River Road near Silver Creek, was the subject of an intense, month-long search by special RCMP forensic units.

The farm is owned by Sagmoen's parents.

Sagmoen has not been connected to the death of Genereaux which police are calling suspicious.

For his last court appearance, Sagmoen appeared by video from a correctional facility.
