On the Quebec side of the river, Batchelor also faces two breach charges for using online dating sites while on bail.

Batchelor had been granted bail while awaiting three rape trials scheduled for 2020.

The accused rapist is now awaiting trials involving nine women who don’t know one another. None of the cases has been tested in court.

The last time Paul Batchelor was at the courthouse in June, he walked out with a big smile on his face after his lawyer Oliver Abergel secured two rape acquittals.

Batchelor took the stand in his own defence during the trial.

Ontario Superior Court Justice Robert Beaudoin accepted Batchelor’s evidence that he had consent in both cases — a claim that differed wildly from the stories the women told at trial. They detailed horrific accounts of sexual assault in 2015 at Batchelor’s Sandy Hill apartment, near the University of Ottawa, where he was a student at the time.

Gatineau police are also investigating accusations that he threatened to kill a woman on July 11.

At his recent rape trials, the first woman testified that she was too intimidated to say no, but the judge didn’t find her testimony reliable because she was a combative witness during an intense cross-examination by Batchelor’s lawyer.

“Given her combative answers on the stand, her statements that she suddenly became this intimidated person are not reliable,” Beaudoin told court.

“I find that she gave long speeches on consent and gave contradictory answers to many questions.

The judge also said he found it difficult to accept the complainant’s “increasingly dramatic descriptions of the violent rape she claims to have ultimately endured when the photographic evidence and the hospital reports are reviewed.”

The woman testified that she screamed “No!” loudly and pleaded for him to stop.

Toronto cop who arrested, released McArthur pleads not guilty to disciplinary charges

The judge again sided with Batchelor, saying: “It is difficult to accept that he would have continued assaulting (the woman) with his knowledge that her very loud screams could be heard.”

Batchelor was also acquitted in the second rape case involving a University of Ottawa student. In that case, the judge said, the most significant challenge to the woman’s credibility was that her timing was off by an hour or so.

Assistant Crown attorney Sabrina Goldfarb described Batchelor as an opportunist who had been seeking his own gratification.

Abergel argued that this was simply a case where the sexual activity went further than what the complainant originally intended.

In both cases, the judge said Batchelor had consent for all sexual activity and noted that consent could be given through actions without speaking a word.

Ontario Crown attorneys have filed an appeal, claiming the trial judge made errors that warrant new trials.

The brand new charges come after an exhaustive, five-month investigation by police.

Batchelor appeared in court Tuesday afternoon and remains in custody awaiting an unscheduled bail hearing.
