A court action that began three years ago has finally become public due to a filing by a reporter for The Canadian Press.

In 2010, a few stories circulated about former Bachman-Turner Overdrive guitarist Tim Bachman being charged with a number of counts of sexual touching, sexual interference and sexual assault in a case involving an eleven-year-old girl.  Up until this week, the names of both Bachman and the victim had been kept sealed to help keep the minor’s identity private, but those records have now become unsealed and the details of the crime of which Bachman is charged brought into the public eye.

The victim, who is now 24, told the judge that she would allow her name to also be released saying that she wasn’t afraid and that she wanted others to know that these situations should be discussed. Stacy Bohun was in foster care with the Bachmans from 2000 to 2004.  She told The Canadian Press “I felt the relationship [with Bachman] was very sick. He would get me to sit on his lap and kiss him. One time he tried to French kiss me … It was just a lot of weird, inappropriate things.”

She also told the court that, at the age of 11, Bachman gave her breast enhancement pills and would regularly touch her inappropriately. Bohun ran away from the home in 2004 and became involved in drugs to block the memories of the incidents. She went to police in 2009.

Bachman joined the band of his brother Randy Bachman, Brave Belt, which he formed after leaving the Guess Who. They were signed by Mercury Records and changed their name to Bachman-Turner Overdrive, recording their self-titled debut album and its followup Bachman-Turner Overdrive II which yielded the hits Let It Ride and Taking Care of Business. Tim Bachman left the band shortly after the latter album was released to spend more time with his family.
