Ex-freestyle skier Dominique Laroche, who is accused of sexual crimes, will have to stand trial.

Judge Marie-Claude Gilbert announced Friday that she will not pronounce the stay of proceedings requested by Laroche.

Her lawyer tried to convince the judges that the police did not respect his client's constitutional rights.

On the day of his arrest, investigators detained Laroche for more than 11 hours, despite his clear indication that he wanted to exercise his right to silence.
