Fort Kent man charged with sexually assaulting car dealership employee adjourns matters


FORT KENT - The Fort Kent man charged with sexually assaulting a Cold Lake car dealership employee once again adjourned his matters.

Glen Bringleson, 55, will next appear in the St. Paul Provincial Courthouse on April 17, where he will speak to sexual assault allegations stemming from an Oct. 4, 2019 incident.

He had scheduled a judge and jury trial for Jan. 13, however, has adjourned his matters. 

Bringleson was charged with sexual assault, forcible confinement, unsafe storage of a firearm, and unauthorized possession of a firearm following an incident late last year where he has been accused of sexually assaulting a female car dealership employee during a test drive.

According to RCMP, Bringleson had attended a Cold Lake dealership where he asked to test drive a vehicle. A female employee accompanied Bringleson on the trip, and during the course of the test drive, she was taken to a secluded area and sexually assaulted by the accused.

Police executed a search warrant on Bringleson's Fort Kent home and seized electronic devices.

He was released on conditions including not to attend any car dealership in Alberta and is prohibited from possessing a cellphone with photo/video capabilities.
