A Pembroke priest has pleaded guilty to indecently assaulting boys going back 44 years.
Father Daniel Miller had initially been charged with six counts of gross indecency and indecent assault against a male in connection with incidents alleged to have occurred between 1969 and 1980. The sixth charge was dropped by the crown.
The pleas were entered into a Pembroke court Monday. Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 17.
Miller was ordained in Renfrew on May 10, 1969. The earliest charge stemmed from an incident alleged to have occurred five days after his ordination. He served briefly in Eganville, with other positions in Arnprior, Deep River and Petawawa prior to 1999. The 68-year-old priest from the Diocese of Pembroke was arrested Feb. 29, 2012. He remains out on conditions until his sentencing.
