A founding member of the Canadian rock band Bachman-Turner Overdrive faces new sexual assault allegations just a year after he was acquitted of similar charges.

 

Police in Abbotsford, B.C., say Timothy Bachman is accused of sexual assault, sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching in connection to alleged incidents that happened in the 1990s.

 

Const. Ian MacDonald says police began the investigation after a person came forward with a complaint.

 

Bachman briefly appeared in court on Tuesday and has been released on the conditions that he not have any contact with a person under 16 years old and that he stay away from areas where children might congregate.

 

A publication ban has been placed on any information that could identify the victim, but MacDonald says the charges don't relate to the same woman who accused Bachman of sex assault when she was a preteen foster child in his home.

 

Last May, a B.C. Supreme Court judge found Bachman not guilty, concluding that the testimony of the young woman was unreliable and inconsistent.
