The trial for Michael Hume is underway in Kamloops Supreme Court.

Hume is charged with forcible confinement, sexual assault and uttering threats in connection with an alleged incident on Aug. 8, 2013.

The trial began on Jan. 8 and the 12-person jury heard testimony from the complainant on Jan. 9.

The complainant, who can’t be identified because of a publication ban, told jurors he went to Hume’s house in Lytton after a night of drinking woke up to find most of his body hair shaved by Hume.

Hume was arrested in Merritt in August of 2013 just before the start of the B.C. Ambassador program, a province-wide leadership competition for youth, for which he was president at the time.

Hume and the organization parted ways shortly after his arrest.
