Sex abuse case adjourned a second time

The hearing involving decades-old sex crimes against boys from Stratford and Listowel has been adjourned a second time, but is expected to proceed when it resumes Monday, Nov. 5.

Richard Kunder, 64, of Kitchener, is charged with five counts of indecent assault and one count of buggery. The alleged offenses were committed in the 1960s and ’70s in Listowel when police say Kunder was a resident of Perth County. He also later worked as a driving instructor in Stratford.

Michael Fair, the defense lawyer representing Kunder, requested the adjournment in Stratford’s Provincial Court Monday.

“These are clearly complicated matters,” Fair told Justice McKerlie as to why he was asking for the three-week delay.

Fair added there were at least 20 witnesses involved in the case, though he would not expect to call most of them in a trial.

Judge McKerlie told Fair his client should be prepared to either enter a plea or set a trial date at his next court appearance.
