Peace bond and withdrawal of charges for Father Noronha

Share Button

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  During a Friday, 11 October 2019 hearing “for resolution” all three charges against Father Cecil Noronha  were withdrawn and he entered into a peace bond.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:
