A former Western Hockey League referee will face a trial on one count of sexual assault.

Bradley Jason Reminek has been ordered to stand trial following a preliminary inquiry that ended Thursday in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court.

The purpose of the inquiry was to determine if the Crown has enough evidence to justify a trial.

Details of the case presented during the preliminary inquiry are protected by a publication ban.

Crown said Reminek will now stand trial in New Westminster Supreme Court.

Reminek was arrested in August 2011 after police received a complaint about an alleged offence that took place a month earlier. According to police, the investigation involved an alleged assault against young man.

Reminek is a former part-owner of the Ridge Meadows Flames junior B hockey team and, until last season, did online podcasts of home games.

He is also a former referee who has his Level 5, one of the highest levels in Canada, and has refereed games in the WHL and at international levels. He also appeared as a referee in the Canadian movie The Rhino Brothers.
