Teneycke denied bail

Ronald Teneycke was denied bail at the conclusion of his bail hearing in a Penticton court room on Tuesday.

Judge Gale Sinclair decided Teneycke will stay behind bars, after hearing from crown counsel Nashina Devji and defence lawyer Michael Welsh.

The Okanagan Falls man, a convicted sex offender, is facing nine charges including three breaches and six driving and related offences, stemming from incidents on March 12 and 13 in Okanagan Falls.

A long-haired and thin Teneycke appeared by video for the hearing.

His sister Linda Walker broke down in tears, when Sinclair handed down his decision.

Outside the courtroom, she said, her brother was thin because he had been very worried about his mother, who recently died.

All she wants, she said, is for the police to leave him alone.

Teneycke was arrested early March 13 on a rural road outside Okanagan Falls.

He was recently released from jail after serving a six month sentence for drug possession.
