OTTAWA — A retired Ottawa Valley priest has been charged with historical sexual offences for the second time in less than two years.
Daniel Miller, 69, was charged Tuesday with gross indecency and indecent assault involving a teenage boy between 1970 and 1972 in Deep River.
He was released from custody on a promise to appear in court on Nov. 26.
Police said they launched an investigation after a victim came forward following charges laid against Miller last year.
Miller was charged in March of 2012 with three counts each of gross indecency and indecent assault against boys and one man between 1970 and 1980.
Miller was ordained priest in the Pembroke diocese in May 1969 and served in Eganville, Arnprior, Deep River and Petawawa prior to 1999.
Miller is the fourth priest of the Pembroke diocese to face historical sexual assault charges in recent years.
Father Howard Chabot was charged in July 2013 with sexual assault and gross indecency.
Msgr. Robert Borne was handed a nine-month conditional sentence last year for indecently assaulting a local teen more than 30 years ago.
In January 2008, Msgr. Bernard Prince was found guilty of molesting 13 young boys between 1964 and 1984.
