Arsenault was sent to prison last year after admitting to molesting nine boys in the 1970s. Since then, a 10th man has come forward with allegations.
Former priest Yvon Arsenault, already serving four years behind bars for molesting boys, could be tried in the new year on a new allegation of sexual indecency
Arsenault is now accused of indecently assaulting a male in Shediac between January 1970 and December 1973.
Arsenault has pleaded not guilty.
A preliminary inquiry was held today in Moncton court, and a judge ruled there was sufficient evidence to send the case to trial. Testimony from the hearing is covered by a publication ban.
A date for the trial will be chosen in the coming weeks.
Arsenault and the Moncton Archdiocese are also facing civil lawsuits related to his sex crimes.
