LETHBRIDGE – A one-week trial has been scheduled for the end of 2018, for a Lethbridge man accused of sexually assaulting two teenage boys.

Cody Tyler Black Forehead consented to the trial on charges of sexual assault and sexual interference in January, following a preliminary inquiry to determine if there was enough evidence for the case to proceed.

As part of an agreement with the Crown prosecutor, Black Forehead received a discharge on an additional charge of invitation to sexual touching.

The trial is set to run from Dec. 3 – 7.

In a media release from the Lethbridge Police Service, they stated that an investigation found two 15-year old boys snuck out of their homes and met with an adult who one of them had met through social media, on the night of Apr. 27, 2017. Over the course of the evening, the boys consumed drugs and alcohol at the man's home and were then allegedly sexually assaulted.

Black Forehead remains out of custody on $2,000 bail, under conditions that he report to police, that he not consume drugs or alcohol unless prescribed by a doctor, and that he have no contact with anyone under the age of 18 unless in the company of another adult.

While he will be allowed to use a computer – as Hadford noted that Black Forehead is currently a student at the University of Lethbridge – he can not use it to access social media for the purpose of communicating with underage individuals.
