Cochrane man turns himself in for outstanding sexual interference charge

Jesus Fernando Pina-Aguirre recently turned himself into the RCMP for an outstanding sexual interference charge from an alleged incident in Canmore last year and was also charged with another count of sexual interference in relation to an alleged incident in Banff

CANMORE – A former Canmore man who was charged in January for sexual interference has turned himself in.

In January, Jesus Fernando Pina-Aguirre, 34, of Canmore, was charged after a complaint of sexual interference against a young child was made. RCMP confirmed at the time that the victim and Pina-Aguirre were known to each other.

“This is not a stranger offence, however, there are concerns with this individual being around other kids based on what allegedly occurred,” Cpl. Deanna Fontaine said at the time.

On July 28, Pina-Aguirre, now of Cochrane, turned himself in on the outstanding charge and was also charged with an additional count of sexual interference for an alleged March 17, 2019 incident in Banff.

RCMP said following a judicial hearing, Pina-Aguirre was released with conditions and is scheduled to appear in Canmore Provincial Court later this month in relation to both the Canmore and Banff charges.

Conditions of his release include:

  • No contact with a child under 16 unless supervised by an adult aware of the charges;
  • Not to seek or obtain employment or volunteer positions that involves being in position of trust or authority towards children under 16 years old;
  • Not to attend any public park or swimming area where persons under the age of 16 years are present or can be reasonably expected to be present or daycare centre, school ground playground or community centre.

RCMP are asking anyone with information regarding similar incidents to contact Canmore police at 403-687-5516 or your local police station. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can also contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
