Domotor case heads to alternative measures

Case for Cut Knife-Turtleford MLA Ryan Domotor returns to provincial court Feb. 1.
MLA, Ryan Domotor, seen speaking in Unity, faces a criminal charge following a human trafficking sting operation.

REGINA - The criminal charge against Cut Knife - Turtleford MLA Ryan Domotor for obtaining sexual services for consideration will be dealt with through alternative measures.

That was the indication from the initial court appearance by counsel representing Domotor in provincial court in Regina on Thursday. 

The defence lawyer indicated in court that Domotor was looking to go through the alternative measures program, with the case expected to be resolved at the next court date on Feb. 1. 

Domotor was arrested at a Regina hotel in November following a human trafficking sting operation by Regina Police Services. Immediately after news broke of his arrest, Domotor was removed from the Sask Party caucus by Premier Scott Moe. Domotor has also been stripped of his nomination to run for the party again in Cut Knife-Turtleford in the next provincial election. He remains an MLA but now sits on the opposition benches as an independent.

When asked by reporters for his reaction in November, Premier Moe called Domotor’s actions “disgusting and vile.”
