He was released on no financial obligation with conditions including not going near playgrounds or where there are children. Defence lawyer Stuart Busse objected to the condition of a curfew from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. because of Sims’ job. The court didn’t impose a curfew.

North Battleford Crown Prosecutor Loren Klein told the court the Crown is proceeding by way of indictment.

Sims is due back in court July 7 to enter an election and plea.

The charges against Sims haven't been proven in court.
