Sex charges keep failed Chilliwack school board candidate behind bars
Failed school board candidate Corey Neyrinck was visibly upset in Chilliwack Provincial Court on Tuesday when his scheduled bail hearing was postponed two more weeks.
Neyrinck, who also served as vice-president of the district parents’ advisory council (DPAC), faces six sex-related charges, including sexual assault, sexual interference of a person under 16, making or publishing child pornography and possession of child pornography.
He was in court Tuesday for a bail hearing as he faces three more charges for violating his bail conditions.
When discussion began about postponing the hearing until a later date, Neyrinck became agitated and repeatedly stated that he wanted it to happen immediately.
Neyrinck came to Chilliwack in 2007 for a job at Stream. He was active on the McCammon elementary PAC and spent three years as chair.
The 27-year-old was working as a shift manager at Five Guys Burger and Fries, and has no prior criminal record.
Neyrinck put his name forward to run in the school district 33 byelection won last November by Dan Coulter.
He received just 54 votes, the second fewest of the six candidates. Neyrinck’s name also came up at city council on April 2 as he was subject to a $500 penalty for late filing of his election campaign financial disclosure statement.
w Neyrinck’s next court appearance is scheduled for May 13.
