Father Cecil Noronha has signed a peace bond. During a Friday, 11 October 2019 hearing “for resolution” all three charges against Father Cecil Noronha were withdrawn and he entered into a peace bond.
I am currently awaiting a copy of the conditions attached to the peace bond and will post those as soon as they are available. The charges which Father Noronha faced were:
(1) Sexual Assault on a Person Under Sixteen Years of Age, contrary to section 271;
(2) Sexual Interference, contrary to section 151; and
(3) Uttering Threats – Cause Death or Bodily Harm, contrary to section 264.1(1)(a).
The Steps to Justice website provides a good recap on peace bonds and the process involved whereby a person facing criminal charges can enter into a peace bond. Here is a link:
