The OPP and LaSalle Police have laid 18 more charges against a former Catholic priest.

The new charges against Father Linus Bastien of Chatham date back to the 1970s and 1980s, when he was serving at Churches in LaSalle and Lakeshore.

The seven latest complainants were children when the alleged assaults took place.

Last fall, two former alter boys filed complaints with police that led to sexual assault charges.
