I wrote about the sex assault charge against Denis Vranich here. He pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a female bartender at his nightclub Elixir Lounge during a private, after-hours party.

This follows an earlier conviction on prostitution-related offenses:

In January 2001, Vranich was ordered to pay more than $85,000 in fines and surcharges after being convicted on three counts of prostitution-related offences and three charges of falsifying immigration records.

The charges were laid in 1999 following a joint police task force investigated complaints that young Hungarian women were being lured to this country with the prospect of lucrative employment as exotic dancers.

The section of the Criminal Code under which Vranich was convicted in 2001 refers to procuring persons under the age of 18 and exercising control over them to engage in prostitution.

On the more recent sexual assault conviction, Vranich was sentenced to 12 months of house arrest, meaning he was allowed to enjoy his incarceration from the comfort of his own Ancaster home.
