Former USask prof accused of hate speech free on bail

Terrence Tremaine has been ordered to stay off the Internet

A former University of Saskatchewan lecturer charged with spreading hate and breaching his bail conditions is being released from custody.

Terrence Tremaine appeared via video in a Regina court where he has been ordered to stay away from computers or any devices that can access the Internet. Tremaine was arrested earlier this summer for allegedly breaching previous bail conditions not to post messages online.

The conditions were put in place after Tremaine was charged with spreading hatred in connection with comments posted on the Internet between Feb. 2004 and Nov. 2007.

He has pleaded not guilty and is to be back in court for a preliminary hearing Oct. 19.
