NAPANEE, Ontario, Aug. 23 (UPI) -- A former NHL agent who was the target of a murder-for-hire plot appeared in an Ontario court Wednesday charged with sexual exploitation and assault.

David Frost, 39, former agent of jailed NHL player Mike Danton, was released on $10,000 bond after being charged with 12 counts of sexual exploitation and one count of assault in connection with incidents involving four boys and three girls, aged 14 to 16, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reports.

The charges relate to incidents that allegedly occurred between 1995 and 2001 in eastern Ontario.

Police would not say if the unidentified children were involved in hockey.

Frost's next court appearance is set for Sept. 19.

Danton, a former center for the St. Louis Blues, is serving a 7 1/2-year prison sentence in New Jersey for offering $10,000 to a hitman to kill Frost, his childhood coach who later became his agent.
