A former Bathurst-area priest now living in Montreal will have his new trial date set next month. 69 year old Charles Picot has pleaded not guilty to charges of indecent assault, gross indecency and sexual assault. His trial was supposed to begin earlier this week but was rescheduled because of his declining health. One of Picot’s alleged victims who asked us not to use his name at this time, says he’s in a state of anxiety and depression because of how long the case is taking to get to trial, adding he’s had many sleepless nights as each new date approaches. A new trial date will be set February 8th.
