A new round of sex-related charges against the founder of an iconic Canadian band have been thrown out.
Court records show charges have been stayed against 63-year-old former Canadian rocker, Timothy Bachman, of Bachman-Turner Overdrive.
He was accused of sexual assault, sexual interference, and invitation to sexual relating to incidents alleged to have happened in the 1990’s.
Bachman’s Lawyer Joe Doyle told CKNW the charges were dropped because the prosecution didn’t have a solid case.
“The Crown does not proceed if there is not a substantial likelihood of a conviction. Mr. Bachman has maintained his innocence throughout, and is very pleased the Crown’s decision.”

It’s the second time Bachman has faced, and beat sex-related charges.
Two years ago he was found not guilty on sex charges related to girl between the ages of 11 and 14.
The alleged victim was living under Bachman’s foster care between 2000 and 2004. But the judge found the girl’s testimony as an adult was unreliable.
BTO is best known for the hit songs You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet and Takin’ Care of Business.
