Teneycke enters guilty plea
Sep 18, 2013 / 4:45 pm
Ronald Teneycke plead guilty to two counts in a Penticton courtroom on Wednesday.
One was a breach of his bail by consuming and possessing drugs and the second was under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act-possession of methamphetamine, according to Samantha Hulme, acting communications counsel for the crown.
The Okanagan Falls man was arrested in June and put on bail with nine conditions for an 810.2 application. He was subsequently arrested in August for the breach.
The 810.2 is a preventive order where the crown thinks there is a real risk someone will cause real injury, crown counsel John Swanson said at a Penticton court appearance by Teneycke in July.
He was acquitted in a sexual assault trial, which took place in 2012 in Penticton, but has a prior criminal history including sexual offences.
During the July court appearance, Swanson said he was asking all nine conditions remain in place, because Teneycke is an extremely violent sexual predator, who is at very high risk to re-offend.
Defense lawyer Michael Welsh argued at the time that his client did make efforts to obtain programming in the federal prison system and that his record for the last 20 years has not been at the serious end of the spectrum.
Both files were adjourned to the JCM to set a date for sentencing.
