A former spiritual advisor at an Indigenous-run healing centre in Alberta has turned himself in after a warrant was issued for his arrest, APTN News has learned.
The charges were laid following an investigation into complaints made by an unknown number of women seeking addictions treatment at the facility in St. Albert.
The charges against him have not been tested in court.
Twoteeth, 52, is a Cree man who provided counselling to residential clients at the facility.
His employment contract was terminated after allegations of inappropriate behaviour surfaced on Facebook last December.
Officials at Poundmaker’s have declined to be interviewed.
Twoteeth has not been reached for comment by APTN.
The female clients, who spoke to APTN for an earlier story, allege Twoteeth exposed himself and behaved inappropriately.
Twoteeth is scheduled to appear in St. Albert provincial court later this month.
