It was in February that the 62-year-old was arrested and charged with sexual assault and sexual interference with a minor. He stepped down as MLA for Innisfail-Sylvan Lake at that time.

MacIntyre remains free on bail and must comply with several conditions, including no contact with anyone under 16 without a guardian present.
