The case of a former Bathurst-area priest charged with sex-related offences has once again been adjourned. Charles Picot was not present in Bathurst court this morning. He stands charged with indecent assault, gross indecency and sexual assault–charges dating back to the 1980’s. Defence lawyer Dave Paulin requested an adjournment to review new information to the case that he says was only received late last week. Picot’s next court appearance is scheduled for September 22nd.
