It’s been revealed that one of the founding members of the iconic Canadian rock band Bachman-Turner Overdrive is currently on trial for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a girl between the age of 11 and 14.
Stacy Bohun, now 24, says that Tim Bachman tried to get her to sit on his lap and kiss him, as well as “a lot of weird, inappropriate things” while she was living as a foster child in the rocker’s Fraser Valley home from 2000 to 2004.
“I felt the relationship was very sick,” she said during court testimony in British Columbia Supreme Court. She noted they never had sexual intercourse.
Bachman, 59, is currently on trial for sex assault, sexual interference of a person under 14 and sexual touching of a young person.
A publication ban on Bachman’s name was imposed in 2010 in order to protect Bohun’s identity. It was lifted this week after a request by a reporter from The Canadian Press, and with Bohun’s consent.
“I’m not afraid,” Bohun said in an interview outside court after the judge’s ruling. “I want people to know it’s OK to talk about it.”
