Medicine Hat, Alberta – Recently there have been several social media posts drawing attention to a sexual assault that was investigated in July 2020 in Medicine Hat by the Southern Alberta Integrated Child Exploitation (ICE) Team.

As a result of the ICE investigation a person was charged and no media release was issued for two primary reasons.

Firstly, the courts had imposed a publication ban, and secondly, the privacy and identity of both the young victim and witnesses was considered.
