JESSE DURETTE ARRESTED BY BARRIE POLICE SERVICE FOR ALLEGATIONS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN THUNDER BAY
Appearing by video in bright orange jail jumpsuit from Barrie Police Service in Barrie, Ontario in Courtroom 104 before Her Worship Justice of the Peace Anna Gibbon this morning, Friday December 28, 2018 is 23 year old JESSE JOSEPH LAWRENCE DURETTE AKA CHALLIS.
DURETTE CLAIMS HE HAS NEVER GONE BY THE SURNAME CHALLIS.
He has local Duty Counsel Emily Morris to speak to. Crown Attorney Katrina Van Kessel is also present.
DURETTE CLAIMS HE HAS NO IDEA WHY HE IS ARRESTED.
The court hears he is being arrested for Human Trafficking in Thunder Bay on 2 women and receiving financial benefit from the human trafficking.
A warrant was issued for his arrest February 26,2018. Its alleged that he advertised 2 women on the internet in June of 2017 and received financial compensation for being a Pimp.
Despite the fact that he was wanted by TBPS with these serious charges, The Director of Communications at TBPS did not issue a wanted poster for these very serious charges. In fact, he hasn’t done a media release in over a week. He receives $130 000 taxpayer dollars to notify the public. Notifying the public about human traffickers in Thunder Bay just isn’t a priority.
DURETTE is ordered not to contact his victims. The Crown is refusing to consent to his release. He also has outstanding criminal charges in Barrie with a court date of January 30, 2019.
DURETTE TELLS THE COURT THAT “I stopped f**king (victim name) in January 2018.
Her Worship warns Durette not to say any more.
DURETTE IS BEING TRANSFERRED FROM BARRIE TO THUNDER BAY AND WILL APPEAR BY VIDEO FROM THE THUNDER BAY JAIL ON JANUARY 3,2018 at 1:00 pm.
Another great job by Thunder Bay Police Service working with Barrie Police Service.
