Tim Bachman
Tim Bachman, who was a founding member of Bachman-Turner Overdrive, is on trial in British Columbia, Canada facing charges for sex assault, sexual interference of a person under 14 and sexual touching of a young person.

Bachman was charged in 2010 but a gag order was put in place to protect the identity of the victim, Stacy Bohun. Justice Neill Brown lifted the order on Wednesday after an application was made by a reporter with The Canadian Press.

Bohun told the judge that she didn't mind being publicly identified, according to the Calgary Herald. Bohun, now 24, was a foster child living in Bachman's home from 2000 to 2004 when the alleged abuse took place.

Bohun testified in B.C. Supreme Court that Bachman gave her breast enhancement pills when she was 11 years-old and that he touched her in intimate places during the next four years, but they never had sexual intercourse. She eventually ran away from Bachman's home when she was 14 years-old.

"I felt the relationship was very sick," Stacy Bohun, 24, said during her testimony. "He would get me to sit on his lap and kiss him," she added. "One time he tried to French kiss me ... It was just a lot of weird, inappropriate things."Bachman's lawyer Jack Harris suggested during cross examination that due to drug use Bohun may have imagined or visualized a sexual relationship with Bachman, which she now believes are real memories.
