Man accused of drug & sex trafficking denied bail


A man accused of drug and sex trafficking with ties to Newmarket and Brampton has been denied bail.

Oneil Hopkinson, 38, was not granted his release to a surety Friday and, instead will remain in jail at the Central North Correctional Centre in Penetanguishene.

Hopkinson is charged with more than a dozen counts, including sexual assault and benefitting from sexual services along with trafficking drugs.
