A trial date has been set for the elected Chief of the Xeni Gwet’in First Nation, who’s charged with sexual interference of a person under the age of 16.
51-year old Roger William is due back in court on March 8th of next year.
The alleged incident took place back in May.
Brock Martland, a Vancouver lawyer, has been appointed Special Prosecutor in this case.
William was first elected Chief back in 1992, a position he’s held ever since with the exception of a stint between 2008 and 2013.
He is currently on leave from his role as a Director and Officer of the Tsilhquot’in National Government.
