Former Hostage Joshua Boyle Facing 15 Charges, Including Assault

The father-of-three is due to appear in court on Wednesday.

In an interview with ABC News, Coleman, who is from Stewartstown, Pa., recalled that guards dragged her husband from their cell, and one of them threw her on the ground, shouting, "I will kill you, I will kill you" before assaulting her.

Boyle's lawyer told reporters his client has never been in trouble before and is "eager to see" the evidence against him.

A publication ban has been imposed, preventing the alleged victims from being identified.

When approached by The Guardian, Boyle's wife said she could not discuss the charges against Boyle.

The Toronto Star reported that he will remain in custody until a bail hearing on January 8. Sources close to the family said Boyle alluded to at least one forced abortion while in captivity.

A hearing on the case is scheduled for Wednesday in Ottawa, but the lawyer says Boyle will not attend in person.

Boyle's attorney Eric Granger said he has not received any evidence of the case, as is normal at this stage.

"Mr. Boyle is a young man who we all know has been through a lot. As Mr. Boyle has only just been charged, we are waiting to receive more information (disclosure) about these allegations so that we can respond to them appropriately in court", the statement reads.

Boyle now stands charged with serious sexual crimes dating back to October 14, just days after his family's rescue and return to Ottawa.

The couple were kidnapped in Afghanistan in 2012 and had three children while in captivity, the BBC reports.

Charges include eight counts of assault, two counts of sexual assault, two counts of unlawful confinement, one count of uttering death threats, one count of causing someone to take a noxious substance and one count of misleading police.

Phil Gurski, a former analyst for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), says that going into the meeting with Trudeau there were enough unanswered questions to have given pause to staff at the Prime Minister's Office (PMO), including Boyle's decision to take his pregnant wife backpacking to Afghanistan in the first place. "As to the rest of us, myself and the children, we are healthy and holding up as well as we can".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with the Boyles in his Parliament Hill office on December 18, a meeting that came to light after a Twitter account named "The Boyle Family" posted photos of the meeting.

"Canada has been actively engaged with the governments of the United States, Afghanistan and Pakistan and we thank them for their efforts, which have resulted in the release of Joshua, Caitlan and their children", it said.
