Grande Prairie man facing eight child sexual exploitation charges released on bail

GRANDE PRAIRIE, A.B. — A Grande Prairie man who was arrested and charged with eight sexual offences against children last month has been released on bail.

According to Castanet.net, 34 year-old Jonathan Karl Bruenig, who previously lived in the Kelowna area, was released on $2,500 bail Wednesday. Police say that Bruenig posed as a girl on Facebook in order to lure young boys, and was arrested in late January after allegedly luring and attempting to sexually assault a boy in Grande Prairie.

The judge imposed strict bail conditions on Bruenig, who is forbidden from having any contact with anyone under the age of 16, unless under strict adult supervision. He also cannot attend a public park or swimming area where children under 16 can reasonably be expected to be, and he has been barred from accessing the internet or possessing a device capable of doing so.

RCMP Cpl. Dave Knight said that so far police have identified two victims, but anticipate that more charges will be laid as they believe there to be more victims. Police say Bruenig has been involved with a number of junior hockey teams, and that they are focusing their investigation in the Dawson Creek area, as well as in Northern Alberta, the Northwest Territories, and Australia.

Bruenig is scheduled to make his next court appearance, wherein is anticipated he will enter a plea, on March 19th.
