A trial has been scheduled for Moose Jaw businesswoman Kyra Klassen, who is facing two charges of voyeurism from an alleged incident that occurred in Regina last year.
The trial will occur in Regina provincial court on Wednesday, Feb. 23, starting at 9:30 a.m. in courtroom 6.
Klassen, 35, from Caronport, owns Dance Fitness with Kyra in Moose Jaw. She made her first court appearance on July 14, while her second appearance was to have been on Aug. 4. However, defence lawyer Talon Regent spoke with court officials a day before to set the trial.
“She’s not guilty,” Regent told the Express. “She’s pled not guilty and she’s going to maintain that position. It is our expectation that she will be found not guilty by the end of the trial.”
Regent added that he was confident the evidence pointed in Klassen’s favour.
Based on information previously reported, Klassen is facing allegations that she secretly photographed two nude women last year and posted the images to an online chat group without their permission.
Regina police became involved on April 16, 2020, although the allegations stem from an incident on Feb. 1, 2020, according to the Regina Police Service. The victims are two adult women, and they reported that they and Klassen were friends and had been attending a learning event in The Queen City. All three stayed together during their trip.
The two women allege that Klassen took photos of each of them either during or after their showers when they were not clothed, the police service said. Klassen is then alleged to have posted the pictures to a social media chat group without the women’s consent.
The two women are from Moose Jaw and the surrounding area and initially contacted the Moose Jaw Police Service on Feb. 9, 2020, which then transferred the file to Regina. Police then took Klassen into custody on March 2 and charged her with two counts of voyeurism.
