Bachman Turner Overdrive founder Tim Bachman has been charged with sexual assault.

Canadian police have charged the guitarist with several sexual offenses, including sexual assault, sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching, following an investigation into incidents that took place two decades ago, according to CBC News.

Bachman is currently free under the provision he must avoid contact with anyone under the age of 16.

Additionally, he has been ordered to stay away from public parks, schoolyards, swimming pools and other areas where minors are present, reports RollingStone.com.

Last year, an unidentified woman claimed Bachman had groped her while she was living with him as a foster child. He was found not guilty of the charges.

Bachman co-founded BTO with his brothers Robbie and Randy in 1973. He was a member of the rock group for six years, and rejoined in the early 1980s.

After turning his back on music in the early 1990s, Bachman became a real estate agent in Abbotsford, Canada.
