Curtis Sagmoen plea in police assault case delayed again

Sagmoen plea delayed

The assault case against Curtis Wayne Sagmoen has been postponed yet again.

Sagmoen was scheduled to appear in Vernon court Thursday, to answer to a charge of assaulting a police officer. However, the case was adjourned.

Sagmoen is now scheduled to appear March 25, when he is expected to enter a plea to the charge stemming from an incident Oct. 29, 2020.

That was the same evening police executed a search warrant at Sagmoen's parent's Salmon River Road property, where he currently lives.

Police did not say why they were at the property, which has been the focus of police attention on several occasions.

Police were also there earlier that month after they were alerted to suspicious activity at the farm.

The assault charge is the latest in a string of charges against Sagmoen.

On Feb. 11, 2020, Sagmoen was convicted of assault causing bodily harm after running over a sex trade worker with a quad on the Salmon River Road property.

In December 2019, Sagmoen was found guilty of of disguising his face with intent to commit an indictable offence, using a firearm during an offence, and possession of methamphetamine. He was released the same day due to time served.

The farm near Silver Creek was also where Traci Genereaux's remains were discovered in October 2017.

While police have called her death suspicious, no one has been charged.

Recently, someone spray painted a warning to sex trade workers on Salmon River Road, not too far from the farm where Sagmoen lives.
