Convicted sex-offender Eric Dejaeger has pleaded guilty to four more sex-related charges dating back to the mid-1970s, when the former priest was studying at the Newman Theological College in Edmonton.

Yesterday in Iqaluit, Dejeager pleaded guilty to two counts of gross indecency, one count of indecent assault on a female, and one count of indecent assault on a male. Dejaeger had previously applied to have the charges heard in a Nunavut courtroom rather than in Alberta.

In February, Dejaeger was sentenced to 19 years in prison for sexually abusing children in Igloolik, Nunavut more than 30 years ago. He was convicted of 32 sex crimes ranging from indecent assault to bestiality, dating back to his time as a priest in the community.

Dejaeger is expected to be sentenced on Oct. 22.

IQALUIT, Nunavut — A defrocked Arctic priest already serving time for the sexual abuse of Inuit children is awaiting further sentencing on another four counts.

Eric Dejaeger will be sentenced on Oct. 22 after pleading guilty in Iqaluit Tuesday to the additional crimes, which were committed in Edmonton and include indecent assault and gross indecency.

Dejaeger lived in Edmonton from 1974 to 1978, when he was studying to be a priest.

The sixty-eight-year-old is already serving 19 years in prison for 32 sex offences against Inuit children, committed between 1978 and 1982 in the remote village of Igloolik.

The victims in that case included 12 boys, 10 girls and one dog.
