A man facing multiple charges of sexual assault and sexual interference in Summerland is going to be tried before a Supreme Court judge and jury.

The man, who can not be identified to protect the identities of the alleged victims, faces two counts of sexual assault, two counts of invitation to sexual touching to a person under 16 and two counts of sexual interference of a person under the age of 16.

The man re-elected to go before a Supreme Court judge and jury in Penticton Provincial Court on Dec. 9. The election to Supreme Court requires a preliminary inquiry to take place to determine if there is enough evidence to go forward with a trial.

The preliminary inquiry will take place April 25-26 and will have four witnesses take the stand.
