WINNIPEG - Charges against former junior hockey coach and convicted sex offender Graham James have been put over to Nov. 3 when dates are to be set for the case to proceed.

James has been out on bail for almost a year and living in Montreal since shortly after he was arrested on new sex assault charges.

The charges involve young hockey players he once coached, including former Calgary Flames forward Theo Fleury.

Fleury went on to become a star in the National Hockey League and wrote about the alleged abuse in his book.

He then made a complaint to police, which prompted the second investigation.

James served almost two years in jail in the late 1990s for assaulting three young hockey players, including former NHLer Sheldon Kennedy.
