Jury trial set for Canadian man

A two-day jury trial was set in Louisa County today for a Canadian man facing 22 counts of soliciting a child under the age of 15 over the Internet for sex.

Alan J. Sauve

Alan J. Sauve, 46, of Ontario, Canada was arrested in November as a result of a 10-month investigation by the Louisa County Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, and began with an actual solicitation of a Louisa teen.

Once the solicitation was reported, detectives assumed the girl’s online identity and began communicating with Sauve, and arranged a place to meet in Michigan on Nov. 13.

Sauve was arrested without incident by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents and is awaiting extradition to Virginia.

At a hearing this morning, Sauve  pleaded not guilty and the court set the case for a jury trial on June 1 and June 2.

Sauve is being held without bail pending trial.
