Curtis Sagmoen has been released on bail again.

The North Okanagan man was granted bail on Wednesday after being picked up by police on April 28 for allegedly breaching conditions of his probation. Those conditions were imposed in the wake of a 2019 conviction for pointing a firearm at a sex trade worker.
