Jan Luedecke made a brief appearance Tuesday before the Ontario Review Board at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto.

The board is responsible for determining what conditions, if any, are to be placed upon the landscaper who suffers from sexsomnia, a rare sleep disorder.

Rather than proceed with the hearing, the chair of the five-person panel, Joel Goldenberg, ordered Luedecke undergo a “full and complete risk assessment” to measure what threat he could pose to the public.
