Randall Hopley will have a bail hearing next month.

Hopley faces three charges related to the kidnapping of three-year-old Kienan Hebert from his home in Sparwood in September.

The 46-year-old man appeared via video from Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre.

His lawyer, William Thorne, asked Judge Grant Sheard to set a judicial interim release hearing for Monday, December 19. Hopley will appear via video again.

Thorne said that a psychiatric assessment that was ordered for Hopley in September has been completed. He is being presumed fit for trial.


The judge also ordered a publication ban on the evidence presented at next month’s bail hearing, including the psychiatric report.
