A trial date will be set this month in sexual assault charges against Sudbury track coach David Case and his former student, Celine Loyer.

CBC Radio has reported a Sudbury judge has found enough evidence to send Case, 56, and Loyer, 29, to trial.

Case was facing eight charges – six counts of sexual assault, one count of assault, and one count of assault causing bodily harm – that concern alleged incidents on Aug. 1, 1984, June 27, 1988, Oct. 1, 2009 and June 17, 2011.

Loyer is facing two charges of sexual assault concerning alleged incidents on Oct. 1, 2009 and June 17, 2011.

There was a ban on publication in effect during the preliminary hearing.

Case coached Loyer when she was a sprinter with the DSSG Athletics Club in the late 2000s and maintained a connection with her in subsequent years.

The pair was arrested a day apart in February 2017 following a Greater Sudbury Police investigation the month before.
