A preliminary hearing took place Wednesday for Aldergrove resident Kelly Isbister, accused of molesting numerous young boys in Langley.

Isbister, 41, is facing 16 charges in connection with molestation of young boys. He is charged with four counts of sexual assault, three counts of sexual interference, three counts of invitation to sexual touching, one count of possession of child pornography, two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance and three additional counts of breaching his release conditions.

It is alleged he committed these offences against the boys between June of 2010 and October 2013. Initially, Isbister was arrested and released in August on $5,000 bail. However, police allege he breached his conditions three times.  He has been in jail since then.

In June 2013, he was also charged with trying to pervert and obstruct justice.The Times broke the story that Isbister was charged with molesting boys in January. At that time, police said there may be more victims out there in Langley who may want to come forward.

Within a month, several alleged victims did come forward and new charges against him were added.

Isbister is also facing a new charge of sexual assault, for an offence that took place while he was in jail on June 5. He makes a brief appearance on that new charge on Sept. 22 in Surrey Provincial Court.

Isbister has lived most of his life in Langley.
