Priest in court May 16
06 May 2011
A former Dalhousie area priest facing fraud charges will appear in court in less than two weeks.
Yvon Doiron faces numerous charges dating back to when he was in charge of a Dalhousie parish more than 25 years ago.
A lawyer acting on behalf of his lawyer, Charles LeBlanc, told Judge Pierre Dube in Campbellton court May 2 that he needed an adjournment to get full disclosure.
Dube set the next appearance date for May 16 at which time LeBlanc is expected to be present.
