Tim Bachman, one of four founding members of the '70s rock band Bachman-Turner Overdrive, is currently charged with sexually assaulting a minor. Spinner reports that Bachman was officially charged on Monday, June 14, accused of sexual interference with a person under the age of 14, sexual assault and touching a young person for a sexual purpose.
The woman reported the accusation to the Abbotsford court in British Columbia in May 2009, stating that the incidents occurred between 2000 and 2004, from when she was 11 to 14 years old. 58-year-old Bachman voluntarily turned himself in on May 12, six days after a warrant for his arrest was issued and following an 11-month investigation. Bachman has since been released, but is expected to appear in court on July 5.
The singer-songwriter co-wrote several BTO hits, such as 'Down and Out Man,' 'I Don't Have To Hide' and 'Blown' before disbanding from the band in 1974. Bachman later rejoined for a 1984 reunion album and supporting tour, which continued in 1987 and 1988.
