Sexual Assault Charges Dropped Against Teddy Hart
The Crown has dropped criminal charges against Teddy Hart, a member of Canada’s legendary Hart wrestling family and known for his daredevil antics both inside and outside the ring as well as for his breeding of Persian cats.
Hart, whose legal name is Edward Annis, was charged with assault, unlawful confinement and sexual assault against two women in Sherwood Park, just east of Edmonton, in 2013 and 2014.
The charges were withdrawn at the start of a preliminary hearing May 26.
A spokeswoman with Alberta Justice says the Crown determined after a review that the case did not meet the criteria needed to proceed.
Lawyer Kent Teskey says his client had always maintained his innocence.
“Teddy has had this fog of charges over him for a year and a half,” Teskey said Thursday.
“He’s relieved and looks forward to getting back to work.”
