Another “first appearance” courtdate tomorrow morning (Monday) for previously convicted convicted clerical molester Father Charles Picot.
21 July 2014: 09:30 am, “first appearance,” Bathurst courthouse, Bathurst, New Brunswick (254 St. Patrick St.)
Picot, who has been convicted twice and “acquitted” once on previous sex charges, is currently facing charges of gross indecency and indecent assault.
On his last failure to appear the court was told that Picot, now living in Montreal, is battling cancer and unable to make the trip, – plus his lawyer needs time to review the file.
I don’t know. Does his lawyer need to review the file? or is Picot unable to travel?
And, of course, will Father Picot show up in the morning?
We shall see.
And, yes, alas, sad to say, even after two convictions Father Picot is still very much a priest in the Roman Catholic Church. A disgrace.
I do hope some of you New Brunswick people will be able to make the trip to the courthouse to keep abreast of what’s going on. It will probably be all over in the twinkle of an eye, unless of course Picot is there. Even at that, should he show up it will still be short and sweet. But. at least occasion to see him and hear how he’s going to plea and what his lawyer has to say.
If anyone does attend please keep us abreast of the outcome. If there is media coverage please send a link.
As always, please keep the complainant in your prayers.
Enough for now,
