The next court appearance for Korey Foomani, who faces 11 charges related to sexual offenses against victims under the age of 16 at a depanneur in Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot, is set for November 2.
Korey Foomani appeared briefly before Judge Marie-Chantal Doucet in the Salaberry-de-Valleyfield courthouse on Tuesday, September 4. His defense lawyer, Jean Dury, requested Foomani’s trial be moved to a later date as certain elements of the case against his client were not yet available. The Crown Prosecutor was in agreement saying that copies of videos from security cameras on the premises where Foomani worked were being processed. The Judge set a new date of Friday, November 2.
Investigators from the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) of the MRC Vaudreuil-Soulanges East detachment arrested Foomani Wednesday, June 20. He appeared at the Valleyfield Courthouse on Thursday, June 21 facing 11 charges related to sexual offenses including sexual contact and sexual assault. He allegedly committed these crimes against victims under the age of 16 in a convenience store on Boulevard Perrot in Notre-Dame-de-L’Île-Perrot between 2015 and 2018.
According to the SQ communiqué issued following Foomani’s arrest, several victims had been identified and that triggered the deployment of the Gestion des Enquêtes sur les Crimes en Sèrie (GECS) that is coordinated by the SQ. It is a unified command structure in which Quebec police services work in partnership to quickly identify and arrest predator criminals allowing pooling of police resources. It is also intended to provide better protection for victims.
Anyone who has information regarding the actions of Korey Foomani is asked to contact the SQ confidential criminal information line at 1-800-659-4264.
